We're giving some major props to the Ellen and Portia of the Bronx, Vikky Cruz and Deoine Scott. The happy couple just graduated from Mott Haven Village Preparatory High School in the South Bronx with the honor of "best couple" bestowed upon them by their classmates.

Even though their peers voted for them, accepting them took some warming up at first. "Before, when we started going out, everybody would look at us, like, 'What's wrong with them?'" says Vikky. "But then from 11th grade, everybody started getting comfortable."

The girls, pictured here on prom night, had been out and dating each other for over two-and-a-half years when their names landed on the ballot for "Best Couple." Their love, now immortalized in the yearbook, will become official soon, as they got engaged in December.

In our experience, high school was definitely not an easy place to be different, so these girls definitely win "Most Awesome" in Lemondrop's yearbook.
