Middleburg Heights native is National Merit Scholarship Finalist.
By Julie Mason
Abigail Richard might be the only CIA student with a day named for her. The incoming freshman was honored by Middleburg Heights Mayor Gary Starr with a proclamation designating June 27, 2013, as Abigail Richard Day in the Cleveland suburb.
The honor recognized Richard’s academic achievements throughout high school, including her outstanding performance in the 2013 Merit Scholarship Competition. She was among less than one percent of the 1.5 million students around the nation to be named a National Merit Finalist as a result of high scores on the Preliminary SAT exam.
“I wasn’t expecting anything to come of the PSAT when I took it,” said Richard. “The day that my city let me know at the council meeting about the Mayor’s honor it was great, it was totally unexpected.”
Richard, who will join CIA’s class of 2017 next week, plans to major in Industrial Design. The ID studio first caught her eye in elementary school when she joined her sister on a field trip to campus. “I was just the little sister tagging along,” she said, “but I really fell in love with it.” Further CIA experience in high school through the Cuyahoga County Region Scholastic Art Competition and campus tours confirmed her early impressions.
Even though she’s excited about her future major, she’s coming into the Foundation program with an open mind. “I’m looking forward to taking the first year to grow skills as much as possible and experience new things.”
