Quin Kirsten will be attending Princeton University this fall as an engineering major. An aspiring filmmaker, he is happy Princeton encourages students to explore majors during the first two years because he wants to keep his options open. Quin completed four years of the Engineering Pathway and designed and built an electric skateboard for his senior capstone group project.
As a pitcher for the Eagle baseball team, he was named CIF Scholar Athlete of the Year. He was also a National Merit Scholarship finalist. Throughout high school, Quin volunteered with Challenger League Baseball, an organization that provides an adaptive baseball program for children with physical and intellectual disabilities. He was honored to be selected as one of only 10 students in the Los Angeles region for the Anti- Defamation League National Youth Leadership Mission.
“One thing I think is great about ESHS is that students are provided a lot of guidance on having balance in life and encouraging both creative and analytical activities,” said Quin. “I always felt everything would be OK because of the great support and mentors I had at ESHS.”
