Geneva is proud to announce that three Geneva seniors earned recognition from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Gracyn Freiling and Cameron Kidd were named as National Merit Commended Scholars. Catarina Flores was named a National Hispanic Scholar. These students achieved this award for their academic accomplishment on the 2018 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
Gracyn is the daughter of Tammy and Russ Freiling of San Antonio; Cameron is the daughter of Tracy Lyon of Boerne and Joe Kidd of San Antonio; and Catarina is the daughter of Patricia Davila and Gregorio Flores of Boerne. These students are members of the 2020 Senior Class which will be the 10th class to graduate from Geneva. This is also the 10th consecutive Geneva School Senior Class to have members earning National Merit recognition.
Over 1.5 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.
In addition, students are selected to participate in the National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP) when they score in the top 2.5% on the PSAT/NMSQT among all Hispanic and Latino test-takers in each region.
