Salutatorian: Kushaan Jain

Kushaan Jain, Salutatorian of the class of 2022 is a great example of persistence and hard work paying off. Attending Rutgers University in the fall, Jain will further his education and endeavor to enjoy the environment. A balance is meant to be enjoyed between work and play. His time here at NBTHS has demonstrated that.
