Grade 6 student Andrew Lynch, Grade 7 remote student Lila Cownie, Grade 7 student Christopher Proia-Roy, and Grade 8 student Tatiyana Orrego-Dupree were named March’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.
“We selected Andrew Lynch as Loyola Leader for March to highlight his positive attitude and the work ethic,” says Loyola teacher Ms. Foley. “He puts his best effort into everything that he does! He has shown himself to be leader to his classmates, as his is always helpful and willing to go the extra mile! Andrew truly lives by the value of ‘Magis’, and we are sure that he will achieve great things!”
“We’re thrilled to have Lila Cownie as our remote Loyola Leader for the month of March,” says Loyola remote teacher Ms. Capobianco. “Lila brings optimism and kindness to our 7th grade by sharing her insights and adding her voice to our class conversations. Lila is a hard-working student, whether working on her own, with a partner, or during our full class discussions. She embodies the Jesuit value of caring for others through her words and actions both inside and outside our classroom. She is a supportive, reliable, helpful person and a role model for others.”
“Christopher Proia-Roy earned March Loyola Leader because of the great effort and positive attitude he brings to the classroom each day,” says Loyola teacher Mr. Jaehnig. “He is willing to lend a hand to classmates and teachers without hesitation and is respectful of others. Christopher displays the Ignatian value of ‘Men & Women for Others.’”
“Tatiyana Orrego-Dupree was selected as the Loyola Leader for March because she brings out the best in others each and every day,” says Loyola teacher Ms. O’Brien. “She puts her best effort into everything she does and brings a positive and uplifting spirit to the classroom community. She lives the value of ‘Magis’ by going above and beyond in her academics and as a leader.”
Each month, a student from each grade 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.
