ELIZABETH—Four young women, all students at Benedictine Academy in Elizabeth, have earned recognition for their academic and all-around achievements at the all-female, Catholic college-prep high school. Selected as “Students of the Month” for September 2011 were (seated l-r), freshman Marina Santiago of Newark and sophomore Joyce Mendoza of Union; and (standing l-r), junior Marina Batista of Hillside and senior Dannah Laguitan of Woodbridge. The students will be honored at a breakfast held at the Academy later this month.
Nominated by the Benedictine Academy faculty, the young women were selected for being positive role models, working to their fullest potential in academics and maintaining at least a B grade average. They were also cited for their involvement in service, activities or leadership to their school, church or civic community. (Photo courtesy of Benedictine Academy)
