Grade 6 student Charlotte Minihane, Grade 7 student Daniel Kagramanyan and Grade 8 student Jimena Granados were named November “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.
“Charlotte is being awarded 6th grade Loyola Leader of the Month for her kindness, positivity and maturity,” says Loyola teacher Ms. Foley. “She exemplifies the Jesuit value of Magis; always striving to be more and do more. Charlotte is a problem-solver, takes initiative, and shows leadership in the classroom every day. We are so proud that she is part of our 6th Grade community!”
“Daniel is being awarded Loyola Leader for the month of November for the positivity he brings to school each and every day,” says Loyola teacher Mr. DeVito. “The Loyola core value of Men and Women for Others is exemplified by Daniel on a regular basis, and has come to be expected by teachers and students alike. Regardless of how busy his life may get, Daniel always makes time to spread kindness by assisting his peers with school work, offering a compliment, or cheering others up with a light-hearted anecdote. Daniel’s selflessness is greatly appreciated by all who know him.”
“Jimena is being recognized as our Loyola Leader for the month of November for fulfilling the Loyola values of Cura Personalis and being a Women for Others,” says Loyola teacher Mr. Walsh. “Jimena is always looking to help her classmates at such a stressful time in the 8th grade year. Whether it is helping her peers review for upcoming tests and quizzes or helping a classmate prepare for a mock interview, Jimena shows that she truly cares about the well-being of her classmates and the STCPS community. “
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.
