Loyola Academy Honors September “Loyola Leaders of the Month”

Grade 6 student Paddy Lewis, Grade 7 student Ngozi Akukwe and Grade 8 student Lilly Dixon were named September “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.

 Paddy earned this title for his great attitude and enthusiasm for the year,” says Loyola teacher Ms. Foley-Holmes. “Paddy makes it his mission to make everyone around him smile, through his great humor and concern for others. He truly embodies Cura Personalis, Care for the Whole Person, and we can’t wait to see his continued leadership this year!” 

 Ngozi was chosen as our 7th grade Loyola Leader for her leadership and selflessness,” says Loyola teacher Mr. DeVito. “Not a single day passes without Ngozi giving helpful reminders or offering assistance to others. She is a true embodiment of our Jesuit value of Men and Women for Others. Ngozi’s positive presence is felt each day in our middle school community.”

Lilly has shown a strong start to this school year,” says Loyola teacher Ms. Capobianco. “She brings enthusiasm to all of her classes. She shows the Jesuit value of Magis when participating in classes. She is a strong voice of leadership both within and outside the classroom.”

 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.
