Grade 6 student Marin McAuliffe, Grade 7 student David Perdomo and Grade 8 student Danny Kagramanyan were named February “Loyola Leaders of the Month” (LLM), a program that promotes self-awareness, the Jesuit philosophy, and an opportunity to develop a greater sense of community among the middle school community.
“Marin is a light in our school community, spreading positivity and joy wherever she goes,” says Loyola teacher Ms. Phelps. “She is always looking for ways to assist her teachers, be kind to her peers, and make our school a better place. She is a wonderful example of our Loyola value of People for Others, and we are so grateful to have her! Congratulations, Marin!”
“David has worked incredibly hard in the past few months, and his hard work has paid off,” says Ms. Phelps. “We are so proud of his self-advocacy, study skills, and his ability to ask for help when he needs it. He is living out the value of Magis, always striving to do more. Keep up the awesome work, David!”
“Danny is a student who has earned the Loyola Leader of the Month for being such a strong and generous part of his 8th grade homeroom and Loyola community,” says Loyola teacher Mr. Walsh. “Danny begins every day by greeting his classmates and his teachers and exemplifies the Ignatian value of Being a Man for Others.”
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.
