She had no idea she would be going home with more than $30,000 in scholarship money.
$227,425 was awarded to 84 seniors at the annual ceremony.
Puza won seven scholarships, including the Gaffney Trust Future Teacher's scholarship worth $25,000.
"At first it didn't really hit me," said Puza. "But then I just thought about it, and I thought wow, that's a couple years of college paid for. And it's a good opportunity that I got any money, let alone the amount that I did."
