NEW YORK, NY–Two Loyola School seniors and Yonkers natives, Molly Tobin (right) and Erika Moffa (left), have been accepted to elite colleges, it was announced today by Loyola School. Tobin will be attending Boston College and Moffa will be attending Providence College.
Tobin selected Boston College to begin her quest to become a nurse. Besides attaining over a 90% average in a rigorous academic workload that included six Advanced Placement courses, Molly served in leadership positions for several Loyola School clubs, including Amnesty International (co-president) and Kairos (she was selected leader–one of the most-coveted titles at Loyola). In conversations with others she has mentioned joining the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, or its international counterpart, upon graduating from college.
Moffa is a Loyola School Student Government Officer who is also a varsity athlete. She also was selected by a panel of faculty and students to serve as a Peer Leader, an advisory role to a small group of freshmen. Last year she participated in the school’s Spanish Exchange Program in Seville. This year she was honored with Loyola’s most prestigious award for current students, the Magis Award, which is bestowed on students who ‘have helped to make Loyola School a better place.’
