And it is our finale of our "Gma" yearbook series, robin is in Atlanta, Georgia, to give one lucky school the surprise of a lifetime. Back in high school robin was voted most likely to succeed and this morning she is passing on that honor to an incredible group of girls. How is it going so far, robin? Of course, we took that picture in the school library. All right, here in Atlanta, this incredible school, so many surprises that are in store, they don't know yet, so good morning, ladies. Good morning. You are live on "Good morning America." Whoo! Wonderful. Yes. Oh. Right back at you. Oh. It's great to be here in Atlanta with you to visit the Coretta Scott king young women's academy. Celebrate. We are celebrating each and every one of you, your principal, the teachers, everything about this. It is such an honor to behere. You know, we have gone all around the country and we have highlighted different schools. There is something that is so incredibly special about you and we have some great surprises, but first of all I want people to really know more about you, that the senior, the graduating seniors are earning more than $1 million in scholarships. And because of that and more, you have been named "Good morning America's" most likely to succeed in our "Gma" yearbook. Great. And before you wrap up the school year, we want everyone that is watching -- everybody is watching you at home all across the country, all across the world right now and we want them to know more about you and what you have accomplished. Here in the heart of Atlanta, 337 bright, young women at the Coretta Scott king leadership academy are thriving every day. You can do anything that anyone else can do. You just have to put in the hard work. And it is definitely possible. Reporter: The elite middle and high school develops passionate global leaders with a rigorous curriculum focusing on S.T.E.M., science, technology, engineering and math. I want to attend the university of Georgia and major in biology. I want to study psychology premed and become a psychiatrist. Reporter: The academy proud to be made up entirely of girls of color. The first S.T.E.M. Certified all girls school in the state hoping to increase gender and racial diversity in the S.T.E.M. Field. Being surrounded by girls that are so uplifting that actually look like me, I just become more confident and more sure of myself. Reporter: And it starts early with programs like the quail guardians who supply their community with fresh food. Even raising and selling quail eggs. We're helping out the community and the community is also helping us out. Reporter: And that's they are our most likely to succeed for what they do in and out of the classroom living up to their motto empowering every girl every day to make a positive impact in their local community and beyond. No matter give up no matter how hard it may seem. The future sure is bright for the students at the Coretta Scott king young women's leadership academy. [ Chanting "Empowering every girl every day" ] Empowering every girl every day. I'm with some of the students, denaja and crystal and this is Bernice king. She is the daughter of Coretta Scott king and Dr. Martin Luther king Jr. What does it mean to see your mother's legacy being carried on this like this? It means a great deal and I'm super excited to be here. I'm super excited to continue to see their growth as future -- I call them now leaders actually. And my mother was such a proponent for education. She graduated as valedictorian of her class and obviously went on to college and just to see the extraordinary things that these young ladies are doing, the innovative things they are doing. I think my mother would be super proud today because she said to women, you must become its soul and these women are the soul of the nation. You heard it from Bernice. Denaja, thanks for being here, and crystal, just tell me what does this school mean to you ask what have you learned beyond the classroom. I've learned many lessons. I've learned that if you don't succeed don't just give up, if you fall down, brush yourself off and get back up again, because if you have a goal or a dream that you want to pursue, you do anything that you can to accomplish that goal and you don't let anybody tell you what you can't do. That's right because every -- you got your name on it. Your dream has your name on it. All right, denaja, what are you going to miss? You're a graduating senior. What will you miss most. I'm probably going to miss my sisters like -- we've been through a whole lot. Most of us have been together since sixth, seventh and eighth grade all the way back in middle school and been able to go to each other whether it be personal or about a simple class assignment. This sisterhood we have, I'm really going to miss it. In the 0 seconds we have before we go to commercial, Bernice, what is the message you want for all of these young women? I think the first young lady said it, don't give up and don't let anybody tell you you can't, you were put on the Earth for a reason. Each one of you are an answer to a question and solution to a problem so go out there and solve what's in your heart and go out and answer those difficult questions in our world, I love you, appreciate you and my mother is definitely smiling every day of her life as you continue to achieve success. That's beautiful. All right. Well, y'all get settled in because you have no idea who is here to celebrate you and all that we have planned for you because we just want to say congratulations most likely to succeed and the party is on, the party is on here in Atlanta, G.A.
