Loyola Academy Honors December “Loyola Leaders of the Month”

Grade 7 student Rachab Yewendwossen Golle and grade 6 student Rodrigo Aranguena were named December’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.

“Rachab is constantly looking to help others in and outside of the classroom with a positive attitude,” says math and religion teacher Mr. Jaehnig. “She is polite and always willing to hold a door in the hallway, lend a pencil or help a classmate carry books/materials between classes. Rachab is very respectful towards student and teacher ideas or decisions. She is a great example for other Loyola students of what it means to be a Man & Women for Others at Saint Cols.”

“Rodrigo won LLM because he has such a kind heart,” says grade 6 teacher Ms. Harmon. “He is always striving for “magis”- to be a greater student and classmate. Rodrigo is an extremely hard worker, leads by example and treats everyone with whom he interacts with utmost respect.”

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.
