Best & Brightest


- Katie Wiegman of Barrington is the recipient of a School of Music scholarship from Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, for the 2002-2003 academic year. Wiegman received a fall tuition waiver.

Scholarships are awarded based on initial performance audition, faculty recommendation, demonstrated musical ability and commitment to the student's area of study with a strong grade-point average.

- Daniel Bruhl, a junior at Barrington High School, recently participated in the "Dialogue on Freedom" at the American Bar Association annual meeting in Washington, D.C. Moderated by Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy and Harvard Law Professor and playwright Arthur Miller, the Dialogue on Freedom is a special initiative of the ABA.

Conceived of by Justice Kennedy, the program's mission is, in his words, "to foster among our nation's youth the identification and understanding of fundamental American values and those universal moral precepts that all free people share." The Dialogue on Freedom is a carefully planned discussion structured around an imaginary country named Quest. Hypotheticals in the program ask students to defend American culture and values with residents of Quest, a poor country with limited freedoms and opportunities.

Students from around the country were afforded a unique opportunity to in interact with two of our nation's leading legal specialists.

"It was an amazing experience," Bruhl said. "It certainly deepened my appreciation for the freedoms we have in America."

Bruhl is the son of Diane Bruhl and Rick Cianflone, and Robert Bruhl of Mount Prospect.

- Joyce Coppock, 1998 graduate of Quest Academy in Palatine and 2002 graduate of the Latin School of Chicago, was chosen as one of only eight University Scholars at Duke University from over 16,000 applicants.

University Scholars are selected for their ability to explore new academic horizons. They represent a range of personal and intellectual backgrounds and share an excitement for original research, collaborative thinking, and innovative scholarship.

University Scholars, made possible by a gift from Duke Trustee Melinda Gates and her husband Bill Gates, receive a full tuition scholarship for four years in addition to financial support for an intensive internship, research, or study abroad.
