Marmion Academy seniors Zachary Lentz and Josue Magana, both of Aurora, were presented with The Thomas J. Weisner Service Above Self Award on Monday, January 16, 2017 during the annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Celebration sponsored by the City of Aurora.

Each year the Service Above Self Awards are presented to area students who have been nominated by their school and community leaders for carrying on King's tradition of service to the community. These honorees are amazing young leaders who have dedicated countless hours to making our world a better place.

Mr. Mark Malkowski, Marmion Academy's Director of Campus Ministry, nominated both students for this award:

"Josue exhibits a true commitment to giving of oneself in service to others. He has been active with Special Olympics, working with athletes as a volunteer at a multitude of events throughout his high school career. Josue has also given of his time to collect school supplies for local students in need through Marmion Academy's Crayons for Kids program. Additionally, as a Marmion MENtor, Josue has worked with incoming students, supporting them and guiding their transition into Marmion. Josue has had a truly positive influence on the lives of others and is an incredible model of selfless service."

"Zachary has been highly involved throughout his career at Marmion Academy, and thus has had a great impact on our school community. He serves as a leader of faith as a Eucharistic Minister at school Mass celebrations, and as a member of Outreach Ministry, in which he provides retreat experiences for students in local Catholic parishes. Zachary has been a Student Ambassador, and has provided guidance and support to new students as a Marmion MENtor. Zachary exhibits true character and authenticity in all he does and is an incredible example of leading by example so that others may grow."

Marmion Academy is a Catholic college-preparatory high school for boys operated by the Benedictine priests and brothers of Marmion Abbey. For more information on Marmion Academy visit www.marmion.org<http://www.marmion.org/>.
