Jim Katchko, Jane Donovan, and Steve Truitt were named the 2022 Marcus S. Ryu '91 Employee Recognition Award recipients. The Marcus S. Ryu ’91 Employee Recognition Award
was created in June 2014 through the generosity of Mr. Marcus Ryu to reward and recognize the highest talent within the faculty and staff of Loyola Blakefield. This annual award is provided to two (or more) employees who demonstrate accomplishments beyond the regular scope and assigned duties as employees, with at least half of the awards to go to instructional employees. This award is performance-based and is given to those who have most improved the classroom or campus experience to further Loyola’s success. Each award is comprised of cash and a stipend to be used for professional development in the subsequent year.
Finally, congratulations to Sally Waller and Terry Levering who are retiring from Loyola Blakefield this year. Mr. Levering began his career at Loyola Blakefield in 1984 and has served in a variety of positions including Assistant Principal for Academics, history teacher, and and overseeing our Academic Support Center. Mrs. Waller began her career at Loyola Blakefield in 2003 and has served as an English teacher in our middle school.
