Loyola Academy Honors January “Loyola Leaders of the Month”

Grade 6 student Sophie Minihane and grade 7 student Pablo Avila 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.

“Pablo always has a smile on his face and a positive attitude,” says Emily O’Brien, Loyola Academy ELA Teacher. “He is a great citizen and contributes positively to the community.”

“Sophie is always going above and beyond to help anyone in need,” says Michelle Menacho, Spanish teacher. “She goes out of her way to help her classmates and is kind to everyone.”

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.
