Salutatorian

Rahul Ajmera

Ajmera is a symbol of the excellence Houston prides itself on.

Rahul’s pursuits and successes are of all varieties: academics, athletics and activities. Alongside his incredible test scores, he has received four gold medals on the National Spanish Exam. As a runner, Rahul competed as a member of the varsity cross country and track teams.

Rahul truly shines through his extracurriculars. He is a council member of the Houston High Honors Academy and vice president of the American Chemistry Society at Houston High; including leadership roles in STEM and Mu Alpha Theta.

Rahul is also a tutor for the 30 and Above Club and worked for Mathnasium. With such a wide range of responsibilities and interests, Rahul strived to make time for his true passion: the STEM field.

Through the school, Rahul participates in both the national CyberPatriot competition and the TEAMS Engineering competition.

However, Rahul’s most awarding experience was creating a website and iPhone application with his friends.

It immersed him into the development community and taught him crucial lessons in leadership, organization, and time-management.

With his drive to hone these skills as well as others, he garners the respect of his peers. Rahul exhibits not only the commitment but also the attitude necessary for further success.
