For his Giving Back charity for the month of January, Demetrius Perry chose Loyola Academy. Demetrius told me:
“This is actually a place I try and donate to often. I chose them because the whole school is a charity. They give young boys who grow up disadvantaged to be able to get a quality education. The school is a non for profit and they offer the students scholarships to be able to attend. The staff follows the children from middle school – college to make sure they are doing well and if they need anything they will assist. I feel this school really cares about these young boys.”
Loyola Academy of St. Louis is a Jesuit middle school for boys who have the potential for college preparatory work, but whose progress may be impeded by economic or social circumstances. The Loyola community conducts a challenging program that supports families in preparing each student to achieve his full human potential. In the Ignatian tradition, the school inspires its students to lives of service and leadership through the use of their God-given talents.
