Twin brothers compete for valedictorian position at Katy High School
KATY – The tie is officially broken. Arman Saxena was named the valedictorian of Katy High School. His twin brother, Ronak Saxena, is runner-up.
The tie was so close that it only dropped about half a point.
Twin brothers, Arman and Ronak are seniors at Katy High School.
Two people born just a minute apart.
They are always close to everything.
“Chess competitions, we do math, we do oral reading,” says Arman.
“We have always achieved the same level of success even in different topics,” says Ronak.
The two were tied around their necks to win number one at Katy High School.
“I never expected us to be as tall as we are, valedictorian and runner-up, but I did think we would be tied,” says Arman.
Both currently have a GPA of around 5.0 and are engaged in several activities. They even started the school’s only quiz team.
But in Katy High School, there can only be one valedictorian.
“They had to look at all of the classes we shared and who scored higher in those classes,” says Arman.
The brothers say it was never a rivalry, just a friendly one.
“If he got an A on a test, I would say, ‘Oh, I need to get an A too,’” said Ronak.
They worked hard, motivating each other and helping each other along the way.
“I can say that we have always been very close, as sworn brothers, it was inevitable,” Arman said.
The boys credit their parents for so much of their success.
“My parents definitely pushed us to do our best,” says Ronak.
Mother Sara Saxena said: “The main goal that we set for our sons is for them to grow up to be good people.
“We are very, very proud of what they have accomplished so far, which we are very pleased with,” said Father Rohit Saxena.
Both brothers plan to attend Rice University in the fall. Arman plans to study statistics and business and Ronak wants to major in bioengineering.
