New on the cocurricular menu is Loyola Academy's Women in STEM Club, which has taken off since its launch this fall. Moderated by Computer Science and Math Teacher Mrs. Anita Debarlaben, the club offers opportunities for young women at Loyola to explore STEM fields and careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
"Offering a Women in STEM Club fosters a community of women who support one another to pursue those fields," says senior Courtney Carreira, who founded the club. "Hopefully, Women in STEM will enable girls to encourage one another and create a support network for women in STEM fields." An active member of the choir board, Clavius leadership board, the National Honor Society, the National Spanish Honor Society and the Scholastic Bowl Team, Carreira plans to pursue a major in physics next year.
Held on Thursday, December 13, “Leadership Lessons with the Most powerful Women in Chicago Business” gave Loyola Academy alumni, parents, graduate parents and current students the opportunity to hear from successful Rambler mothers who are leaders in their respective industries. Nearly 150 guests enjoyed the program which included networking, career advice and more.
