Chan has turned his interests into opportunities to give back. "I really believe in reading, that's why I volunteer at the Omaha Public Library," Chan told us, "I really like working with new technology like 3d printers so that's why I work at Do Space."
His commitment to his community earned him a Presidential Service Award. He received a certificate and letter from President Donald Trump.
Westside Middle School Principal Russ Olsen nominated Chan, "I don't know if you can find a student that is more genuine, sincere, just polite, wonderful, nice to everybody."
"Certainly as a student to be able to give back to others and see they're part of a greater community and they have an integral part of our society is pretty important," Olsen said.
