“There are a lot of other people with similar grades at the top who put in a lot of work and sometimes it’s just a few grade points that push us higher.” – Shaan Khan

Congratulations to Walt Whitman’s 2018-19 Salutatorian Shaan Khan! Shaan sees this recognition as a culmination of all the hard work, time and dedication he and even his peers have put in. “This means a lot, though it isn’t just representative of us at number 1 or number 2. There are a lot of other people with similar grades at the top who put in a lot of work and sometimes it’s just a few grade points that push us higher.” One of Shaan’s favorite parts about Whitman is the community and being able to meet a lot of diverse people and learning their different stories. Shaan plays for the Badminton team and is involved with the Coding Club, Mathletes, and VY, helping to rebuild their computers. His favorite subjects are physics, math, and computer science, which are indicative of the work he’d like to one day pursue. After graduation, Shaan hopes to study computer science, software engineering and is interested in cybersecurity. Outside of academics, Shaan plays club soccer and enjoys cars and learning about automotive information. He shared with us, “I’m just like everyone else, living day by day and enjoying the little things.”
