Loyola Academy Honors January “Loyola Leaders of the Month”

Grade 6 student Brenda Borges and grade 8 student James Linehan were named January’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.

“Brenda is such a bright and positive young lady,” says grade 6 teacher Ms. Harmon. “She has demonstrated excellent accountability for herself and is always looking out for her classmates. She is thoughtful and thorough with her schoolwork, is heavily involved in her school community, and loves to give back to the people around her.”

“James has been a great addition to our school this year after coming from St. Jude,” says Loyola teacher Mr. Jaehnig. “I consider him to be one of the leaders in the 8th grade class, and a great role model for the younger Saint Cols students. James is polite, respectful, and displays Magis, as he always strives to go above and beyond what is asked of him.”

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.
