Grade 6 student Harvey Cronin, Grade 7 students Faith Webb-Jones and Brenda Borges, and Grade 8 student Andy Tran were named October’s “Loyola Leaders of the Month” (LLM), a program implemented to promote self-awareness, practice the Jesuit philosophy, and develop a greater sense of community among the middle school community.
“Harvey is a wonderful student and is incredibly kind toward his peers,’” says Loyola teacher Ms. Harmon. “He demonstrates excellent leadership skills and brings a positive and open mindset to school every day. We were honored to give the award to Harvey!”
“Faith puts her best effort into every assignment she's given and takes pride in doing her work well,” says Loyola teacher Ms. Capobianco. “During our lessons, she always participates, asks clarifying questions, and thinks critically. Her classmates noted how much kindness and enthusiasm she brings to our virtual classroom every day and we're excited she's our Loyola Leader for the month of October!”
“Brenda is a wonderful presence in our middle school community,” says Loyola teacher Mr. DeVito. “She respects the viewpoints and beliefs of all her peers, and pushes herself and others to strive for more each day. She truly embodies what it means to be a Loyola Leader. This award is a well-deserved recognition of Brenda's character.”
“Andy is truly selfless in the classroom,” says Loyola teacher Mr. Walsh. “He is always willing to help his peers whether it's helping a new student get settled or helping classmates review for an upcoming test. In addition, he displays nothing but the highest amount of respect for his peers, his teachers, and his environment. Congrats Andy!”
Each month, one male and one female who have distinguished themselves and exemplify the two core values of Loyola Academy (“Magis” and “Women and men for and with others”) are recognized by the Loyola Academy team. Students also have the opportunity to submit votes for their peers who they feel have shown great strides in becoming a leader in our community.
