CROWN POINT | Abigail Eineman, daughter of Teresa Eineman of Crown Point and a junior at Crown Point High School, has been selected to participate in the Resident Honors Program at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. This fall, Eineman will become one of 24 students chosen from a nationwide search to participate in this highly competitive early entrance honors program. Eineman has been awarded a Deans Scholarship from USC.
At USC, Eineman will enroll in the Thematic Option, an interdisciplinary honors program that has been nationally recognized as one of the finest honors programs in the country. In addition, Eineman will begin her major studies in international relations in the USC Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences.
As a student at CPHS, Eineman served as the vice president of the Political Affairs and Current Events Club and as a writer and head photographer for Inkling, the school newspaper. An accomplished musician, Eineman was the principal double-bassist and section leader of the Crown Point Woodwind Choir, a 2-musician ensemble. Eineman also participated in the South Shore Leadership Youth for Community Engagement, LEAD Council and the Stray Dogs Improv Comedy Club.
"RHP is an excellent opportunity for high school juniors who are academically ready for the challenges of college and who are mature enough to get a head start on their college career," Dr. Penelope Von Helmolt, director of the program said.
CPHS provided outstanding support for this talent student, both through academic preparation and strong recommendations.
