Students who were in attendance for 2019 Principal‘s List Awards Ceremony.

At the recent Board of Education meeting, as members of the community voted in their annual school budget and BOE elections in the South Gymnasium, many of Walt Whitman’s smartest students were across the hall in the Performing Arts Center being acknowledged. “This prestigious ceremony honored 109 students who maintained a 95% academic average throughout their high school careers,” said BOE President Nicholas Ciappetta.  “We literally beamed with pride in hearing dozens of resumes, describing young people who have excelled in the classroom, served their schools and communities, earned numerous co-curricular accomplishments, and now prepare to attend some of the finest schools in the nation.”  It’s the Principal’s List awards, where each student is brought up in front of classmates, family, and friends, a brief bio is read about his or her accomplishments and camera flashes abound. The honorees names are placed on a plaque that will be displayed on the walls of Whitman for years to come.

We congratulate the 2019 Principal’s List winners and commend their teachers and parents on a job very well done:

Valedictorian – Ashar Farooq

Salutatorian – Shaan Khan
