Another round of congratulations for my Stanford undergraduate mentee, Sahand Rabbani. I wrote an earlier post about Sahand’s 2008 Wallace Sterling prize, awarded for ranking in the top 1% of graduating seniors in the School of Humanities and Sciences and his 2008 Terman Prize from the School of Engineering. To top those off, he has now won the 2008 Henry Ford II Scholar award from the School of Engineering, ranking #1 in his class of about 400 engineering graduates.
Did I mention that Sahand also writes short stories and translates Persian poetry? It’s true! Congratulations Sahand: I celebrate your excellence and achievement with you. And your fine character as well!
