Geneva School of Boerne is proud to announce that four seniors earned recognition from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Juliana Flores was named National Merit Semifinalist. Hailey Hubenak, Austin Malkowski and Elle Nicholson were named National Merit Commended Scholars.

Juliana is the daughter of Gregorio Flores and Patricia Davila of Boerne; Hailey Hubenak is the daughter of Katherine and Darren Hubenak of San Antonio; Austin Malkowski is the son of Jessica and Richard Malkowski of Boerne; and Elle Nicholson is the daughter of Nicole and Jim Nicholson of Boerne. These students are members of the 2023 Senior Class which will be the 13th class to graduate from Geneva. This is also the 13th consecutive Senior Class at Geneva School of Boerne to have members earning National Merit recognition.

“Part of our mission is to help students become lifelong learners, so it is good to partner with the National Merit Scholarship Corporation as they promote a deeper respect for learning,” Geneva Rhetoric School Headmaster Dirk Russell said.

Over two million students took the PSAT last October and entered the National Merit Programs, a nationwide competition for the recognition and awards conducted by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Nationally, 16,000 students were named Semifinalists and 34,000 were named Commended Students.
