Champion High School Student Named National Merit Finalist

ParraMarch 25, 2024- The Boerne Independent School District is proud to announce that Champion High School Senior Nicolas Parra has been named a National Merit Scholarship Finalist.


Parra is one of just 15,000 students, representing less than 1% of U.S high school graduating seniors, to receive this distinction.


Parra  is involved with many activities and services on and off campus. He is a member and President of Spanish National Honor Society, as well as the National Honor Society. Every Friday night during the fall season, you can see Parra lead the Mighty Charger Band as their drum major. As a member of the student council leadership committee, he is a role model for his fellow classmates helping them with various projects throughout the school year.


The selection process involves evaluating substantial amounts of information about Finalists obtained from both students and their high schools. Included are the Finalist’s academic record, PSAT/NMSQT® scores; the student’s essay; demonstrated leadership and contributions to school and community activities; and the school official’s written recommendation and characterization of the Finalist.
