Four elementary school teachers were honored on May 8, 2019 by Cabrini High School students. The Distinguished Educator Award is presented annually to teachers who have done an outstanding job preparing their students to succeed in high school. This year’s honorees are:
Jodi Epp, Christian Brothers School, nominated by Mary Miller ‘22
Lynette Jones, St. Leo the Great School, nominated by Cydney St. Junior ‘20
Ximena Lopez, St. Edward the Confessor School, nominated by Emma Williams ‘22
Kevin Loup, St. Rosalie School, nominated by Makenna Borne ‘23
Each year, Cabrini students who demonstrate outstanding character and hold a GPA of 3.5 or higher are given the opportunity to nominate an elementary school teacher who has had a positive impact on their lives. In the nomination, students are asked to share why they selected the teachers and the impact the nominee has had on their lives and preparation for high school and beyond.
Cabrini High School President, Jack Truxillo, addressed the Distinguished Educators and guests, “You have made such an impression and had such an impact on your former students that they chose to go through the nominating process. That in itself speaks volumes. Cabrini’s Distinguished Educator Award honors those elementary teachers who have shaped and prepared the outstanding young women who come to Cabrini High School.”
