Loyola Academy Honors October “Loyola Leaders of the Month”

Grade 6 student Shane Lundrigan and grade 8 student Luisa Maria Ocampo Garcia were named October’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.

“Shane is an enthusiastic learner who is always committed to doing his best,” says Ms. Smith, Humanities teacher for grade 6. “He is a kind, hardworking student and he plays a vital role in our classroom community. He shows so much respect for his peers and teachers. Shane should be extremely proud of the work he has done so far at Loyola Academy.”

“Luisa is always walking around school with a smile on her face,” says Mr. Hurd, Assistant Head of School, Grades 5-8. If you are down Luisa will cheer you up! Luisa is always willing to help others, especially in her favorite subject, Spanish.”

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”) will be recognized by the Loyola Academy team. Students will also have the opportunity to submit votes for their peers who they feel have shown great strides in becoming a leader in our community.

Each month, the two honored students will be recognized during that month’s final morning meeting. Additionally, these students will receive the following:

  • Recognition in front of entire Loyola Academy community
  • A photo posted in the Loyola Academy hallway
  • A certificate as a Loyola Leader of the Month
  • A dress down day
  • A gift card to Dunkin’ Donuts
  • Lunch with Mr. Hurd
  • Free school apparel
