Lange Eo has no shortage of accomplishments to his credit, with the first being his sheer academic achievements: third in his class; five AP credits; four years of honor roll; membership in the National Honor Society and National Art Honor Society; plus four years of perfect attendance. He’s poised to attend Drexel University in the fall with multiple scholarships and grants, including a Drexel Liberty Scholarship, where he’ll major in Game Design and Production. Pretty cool. What 18-year-old with the wherewithal to funnel his hard work and talents into a specialty like Video Game design wouldn’t be completely pumped to get started?
The Southwest Philly resident and recent graduate of Ss. Neumann-Goretti Catholic High School, 1736 S. 10th St., has been pretty committed to his passions for the past four years, each of them characterized by participation in an Art Club and Tech Club (both of which he served as president this year). As a Mathlete and Honor Society tutor, he’s proven capable of sharing his shine. And as a part-time employee of his family’s business since seventh grade, he clearly has enough work ethic for more than one human. His design talents are so obvious and apparent, the Parents Association requested his eye for the creation of a logo for the Neumann-Goretti talent show. Here’s hoping Valve or Blizzard or Nintendo snatch this scholar up. – Bill Chenevert
