Marlboro High School (MHS) is proud to announce that Noah Gecht has been named valedictorian of the Class of 2023 and Eva Carbone is this year’s salutatorian. These students excelled not only academically during their High School careers, but in a wide array of sports and extracurricular activities as well.
Noah earned top honors with a GPA of 102.478. He has maintained a rigorous course schedule at Marlboro, filled with several Advanced Placement (AP) and college courses. He is the Class Treasurer and a member of the National Honor Society, the Spanish Honor Society, and Youth in Government.
Noah is the son of Michael Gecht and Yao Lin of Marlboro. He is deciding between attending Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Stony Brook University in the fall. He plans to major in Business Administration.
Noah said he will miss the sense of community that exists at MHS, and the supportive faculty that helped him throughout his time at the school.
“All of my teachers have impacted me in one way or another, whether it was by pushing me to succeed to just being there for me to talk to,” he said.
Salutatorian Eva Carbone, whose GPA is 101.759 also took on a full course load, which included several AP and college courses. She is a member of the National Honor Society and Youth and Government and was a member of the Spanish Honor Society. She also serves as Head Stage Manager for the Drama Club. She competed on the Junior Varsity Softball team in Grades 9 and 10, and has also kept busy with piano and horseback riding lessons outside of school.
Eva says many teachers have influenced her at MHS, most notably, her Public Policy teacher Brian Barbulean.
“Mr. Barbulean is an incredible teacher who motivates me to be the best person and student I can be,” she said.
Eva, the daughter of Joseph and Melissa Carbone of Marlboro, will attend Mount Saint Mary College this fall, where she plans to major in Social Science.
Rounding out the Top Ten for the Class of 2023 (in order of rank) are Juliana Duarte, Caitlin Liu, Gabriella Williams, Timothy Liu, Reese Shuta, Jack Schlagler, Celeste Charlemagne, and Alivia Menser.
MHS is extremely proud of all of its hardworking seniors!
