Studying the IB Diploma at EISP opened the doors to success for Giorgia and Riccardo Balin. Giorgia graduated from EISP in 2009 and Riccardo in 2011.
In May 2016, Riccardo obtained his Masters in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Boulder, Colorado, winning the Chancellor’s Recognition Award for achieving straight As in all his studies in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. This follows his award in 2015 for the highest GPA of any undergraduate student in the college that year. Riccardo has now been hired as a researcher by the university and will shortly begin his PHD.
Also, in May 2016, Riccardo’s elder sister Giorgia graduated cum laude from the Charlotte School of Law in North Carolina with a pro bono for service to the community and the university’s Order of Excellence. Simultaneously, Giorgia was awarded an important prize from the Association of Lawyers in North Carolina for the best student of the year for her pro bono activities. Giorgia is now married in Colorado where she will be sitting her bar exams for entry into the profession.
We are delighted for Giorgia and Riccardo. Their achievements are a credit to their parents, their universities and their school. They are fulfilling the promise they showed in EISP and we wish them every continued success.
