March is Madness for Irish Dancers BY STEVE SADIN DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

As St. Patrick’s Day approaches, Irish dancers are in high demand for entertainment. But they spend the rest of the year honing the skills of a very competitive sport that requires rigorous training for regional, national and world competitions. Dancers from the O’Hare School of Irish Dance in Lake Forest started their seasonal performances March 3, and by St. Patrick’s Day March 17 they will have finished 20 shows, according to Veronica Lilja, the lead teacher and a world medalist herself. She has also won two regional titles. Once the celebratory performances are over, Lilja will get back to training her 65 students at the Lake Forest Recreation Center for competitive dancing throughout the Midwest, leading to more advanced competition for those who qualify. Irish dancing started as an Irish tradition, but it has become an extremely competitive sport, said Lilja, adding that its popularity expanded when Riverdance and Lord of the Dance became popular. “When those shows came out everyone wanted to do Irish dancing,” she said. Though Riverdance opened in 1994, Tim O’Hare, a two-time world champion Irish Dancer, started his school almost 40 years ago. “He is a legend in Irish dancing,” said Lilja. “It was an honor to be taught by him. He’s the reason I’m teaching now.” She was 3 when she started dancing. Another dancer at the O’Hare School who started at 3 is Ciara Carroll of Lake Forest, a seventh grader at The School of St. Mary in Lake Forest. She has advanced from local competitions (known as feiseanna) to regionals, known as Oireachtas, four times. Continued on PG 10

It’s Time for the McKenzie Variety Show BY EMILY SPECTRE DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

With the McKenzie Elementary School Variety Show entering its 38th year, the parentwritten, directed and performed show is just as popular as ever. This year more than 115 parent volunteers are spending their free time preparing for the show, which will run March 10-17. “There is always a new crop of parents,” Michael Clarke, this year’s Variety Show director, told DailyNorthShore. While the Variety Show is the school’s largest fundraiser — it typically raises about $20,000 — it’s also an integral part of the school’s culture, and its reputation extends well beyond the McKenzie community. “It’s something that everybody in the school system knows about,” Clarke said. Serving as both a top-fundraiser and community-builder is part of what makes the Variety Show a lasting tradition. “That is one of the fun things (about the Variety Show). We are contributing to the PTA, the school and our kids ultimately,” said Sydney Regalado, the show’s producer. This year’s show includes 25 singing and dancing numbers that are tied together by a common theme chosen by the director and parent volunteers the previous spring. It’s too early to reveal the theme this year — it is typically kept a secret until its revealed to students two weeks before opening night on a school bulletin board. But this year Clarke and Regalado are being especially coy about the theme, and don’t plan to fully reveal it until the show is performed. While kids love the build-up to the big show and seeing adults on stage acting silly, for

accept people where they are,” Regalado said. Initially, many parents volunteer for the show because their kids want to see them on stage, Clarke said. New parent volunteers frequently become overwhelmed in the midst of rehearsals, but over time they feel a part of the cast and community and are hooked. “Everybody is in one-hundred percent. They are just sold on it. It’s like an addiction,” Clarke said. While the Variety Show seems to grow in participation every year, increasingly a lot more dads have become involved with the Variety Show as well, Regalado said. In years past it was common to see women dominating most of the acts, but now men are integrated throughout the show. Even the tap dance number includes dads this year, a first for the Variety Show. Since the show has been running for such a long time, coming up with a new and exciting theme can be a challenge. “Trying to make the show unique, fresh and different each year without losing the underlying sentiment of the show, which is all about the kids, parents and community, is difficult,” Regalado said. But each year McKenzie parents are up for the challenge, performing six sold-out shows, as well as free alumni and sensoryThe cast of the musical number “Fly” includes, from left: Flash: Erich Kirr; Black Widow: Amy Falkowski; Mrs. friendly shows.

I’m very competitive and I look forward to (eventually) going to nationals.” When Helen Hill was six, her father took her to Chicago’s South Side Irish Parade, where she got her first glimpse of Irish dancing. “Once I saw those dancers I really wanted to do it,” said Hill, a Chicago resident and a senior at Trinity High School in River Forest. Hill was hooked and began dancing at the O’Hare school in Lake Forest. She has a national competition to her credit as well as three regionals. The O’Hare school offers classes in Chicago and Libertyville as well as Lake Forest. Lilja said the 65 students in Lake Forest range from 3 to 18 with skills at various levels. The students start learning the basics in their first year, said Lilja, and most advance to competitions. This year, 50 O’Hare dancers are contending in entry-level feiseanna. Of those 50, 17 have advanced to regionals, which draw dancers from across the Midwest. One of the benefits of Irish dancing regardless of the skill level is the confidence and discipline it gives the participants, according

to Lilja. It requires a strong work ethic and the ability to balance time commitments to school, dancing and other elements of life. “You have to have a good work ethic,” said Lilja. “You have to be confident when you’re out there. It’s a great feeling when you win. It’s good to learn all of this from a young age.” Confidence building and the camaraderie of the competitions are two of the things Katelyn Robson said she gets out of Irish dancing. A Glenview resident, she is a third grader at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Glenview. “I really like the dancing and doing all the steps,” said Robson. “We work on our own but we try to help each other.” Though Lilja began assisting O’Hare by teaching students when she was 14, becoming a certified Irish dance teacher takes a lot work, including passing a four-hour exam in Ireland. She took hers in Limerick. “It’s hard to pass the first time,” said Lilja. She did. Lilja said the sport is hard on the dancer’s body, which is why at 26 she no longer competes. She compared Irish dance to sports like gymnastics and figure skating, though it is not offered at the Olympics.

There’s More to Stats-fanatic Gussis Than His Numbers BY BILL MCLEAN DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

Tyler Gussis has had an affinity for statistics since his father, Sam Gussis, compiled them for Tyler’s youth baseball teams and emailed them regularly to the family of each ballplayer. Math is the Highland Park High School senior’s strong suit. “And I love sports, love watching games on TV with my family,” says the 6-foot-1 Gussis, a two-sport (basketball and baseball) varsity athlete and rabid White Sox, Bears, Bulls and University of Illinois athletics fan. “One of my favorite stats in baseball,” adds the 2017 all-Central Suburban League North outfielder/pitcher, “is exit velocity [the speed of the baseball as it comes off the bat]. But some stats in baseball lie. All outs aren’t always bad outs; you might go 0-for-3 in a game, but two of the outs could be considered positive outs in certain game situations.” Gussis, the student-athlete, in a nutshell: a sharp single to a gap in the outfield, every single time. Nothing fancy, nothing sensational. His favorite professional baseball player is White Sox first baseman José Abreu. “Because he’s quiet and consistent,” says Gussis, quiet and consistent in the classroom, on the basket-

respect right up there at the top,” says Gussis, who has applied to Northwestern University and Dartmouth College (his father’s alma mater), to name a couple, and hopes to become an entrepreneur someday. “My basketball coach [Paul Harris] always encourages his players to strive for excellence on and off the court, to play with great effort at all times, to play with the right attitude.” Gussis provided instant energy and reliable defense off the bench as a rookie varsity hoopster in his sophomore season. The forward started for the Giants last year and started and served as a quad-captain for a 15-win squad in his final season. He took care of the basketball as if it were somebody’s newborn. A Gussis turnover was a rarity. “Tyler,” Harris says, “was such a smart, steady player for us.” Tyler Gussis Gussis, at times, probably sounded a lot like Harris at the local Rec Center — with his younger ball court and on the baseball field. brother, seventh-grader Darren, absorbing Tyler’s Among the classes Gussis is taking this year are hoops tips.

to prevent opioid abuse, addiction, overdose, and death. Nerheim said the initiative is immersed in education and prevention. He said a key component is the Text-A-Tip program developed by Lake Forest based LEAD which lets a person send an anonymous text for help and will quickly get a response from a health care professional. He also started A Way Out in June, 2016, to give people a way to get into treatment at any time. If a person wants treatment, they can walk into one of 11 designated police stations in Lake County including Lake Forest and Deerfield and be whisked into treatment. He said there is no fear of arrest. Through January 30, Nerheim said 326 people have sought treatment and 291 have successfully completed it. He said some of the 35 others have decided after going to the police station not to get treatment. He said not everyone is local with participants coming from as far away as Tennessee and Arkansas. “We had one person drive all the way here from Arkansas for treatment,” said Nerheim.

To Airbnb or Not? That’s Lake Bluff’s Question BY STEVE SADIN DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

Two proposed ordinances dealing with short-term rental of real estate in Lake Bluff are getting refined before further consideration by the Village Board of Trustees. The trustees and Village President Kathy O’Hara asked village attorney Peter Friedman and Administrator Drew Irvin to rework some details of the proposed ordinances during a meeting of the board’s Committee of the Whole February 26 at Village Hall. One ordinance would amend the village code to specifically prohibit short-term rentals altogether while the other allows the practice but places restrictions on it. The Committee of the W hole is scheduled to look at the revisions at 6 p.m. March 12 at Village Hall. If the process is allowed under the terms of the existing ordinance, it will be a pilot program for two years, according to Irvin. If the board took no action after that timef rame, the program would expire. Trustee Paul Lemieux suggested once the

ordinances are revised they be sent to the P lan Commission & Zoning Board of Appeals for public hearing. One trustee, Barbara Ankenman, said she was opposed to allowing short-term rentals in the village. Another trustee, Mark Dewart, was not present. The other four mainly offered suggestions on how to best regulate the practice. Hotels as well and bed & breakfast properties are not considered short-terms rentals under either ordinance. A short-term rental is a dwelling containing five or fewer rooms used for sleeping rented by transient guests for less than 30 consecutive days, according to the proposed ordinance. Any short-term rental must be owner occupied for at least 275 days in a calendar year, according to the proposed legislation. It must also be the owner’s primary residence. Second homes cannot be rented on a short-term basis. Parking for short-term rentals must be on the property and not on the street, according to the suggested law. No more than 10 adults may stay in a residence at one time and all rentals must be for two days or more. All short-term rental properties must be registered each year with the village, according to the ordinance. The detailed form, which Friedman said must be signed in affidavit form under penalty of perjury, contains information about the use and conditions of the property. “The annual registration is one way we can assess compliance,” said Lemieux. “ We’d like this to be as clear as can be,” he added referring to the registration requirements. The registration fee set forth in the proposed legislation is $350 per year but Trustee Eric Grenier suggested the charge as high as $450. Before registration is approved, the

proposed ordinance requires an inspection for life-safety issues, demonstrating proof of insurance and compliance with the village code including fire extinguishers, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, the ability to exit f rom a second floor window and hand railings for all staircases. Trustee William Meyer suggested proof of insurance be a commercial policy and not a standard one for homeowners. Fines for any violation of the ordinance can be as much as $5,000, according to the proposed law. Each day the facility is out of compliance is a separate offense. Ankenman suggested the board send only

one ordinance to the PCZBA for consideration after the trustees determine which one is likely to prevail. Though O’Hara said that was a possibility, no decision was made. Six members of the public also spoke about the potential ordinances. Two were in favor of allowing short-term rentals while four expressed strong objections including lifesafety and insurance issues. Deborah Fischer, a real estate agent, said she did not believe short-term rentals would have a negative impact on property values. Gary Peters suggested letting voters decide the future of short-term rentals through a referendum.

Turbocharged Speeding up the game worked well for Lake Forest Academy’s Canadian Connection BY KEVIN REITERMAN SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

As youngsters — and sidekicks — residing in the same neighborhood in Toronto, Canada, Matey Juric and Vasilije Vukmanovic used rapid transit to get to places. Emphasis on rapid. The two of them — lifelong friends who have known each other since they were four-year-olds — lived in the heart of the city. They constantly were making connections to board subway trains, buses and streetcars. Hustle and bustle. To get to his school back then, Juric would wake up at 7 a.m. and hurry down to the local transit. Twelve subway stops later, he’d arrive at his destination. “You learn to go fast,” Juric said. As basketball players at Lake Forest Academy, fast turned into breakneck fast. The two seniors, both of Serbian descent, came to the states prior to the 2016-17 season and immediately played the game their way. Accelerator pushed down. Pedal to the medal. Full throttle. They turned basketball courts into superhighways. Forces. Of. Nature. In a home game against Chicago International Charter School (CICS) Longwood on Jan. 26, Juric made a steal in the open court and then dashed down court and stuffed a two-handed dunk. Hang a star on that one. Or, maybe four. “He’s made multiple plays like that one,” said LFA’s first-year head Kyle Koncz, a former Division I basketball player at Princeton University. Juric can fill up a basket. He also can fill up a highlight reel (go to YouTube.com and get an eyeful of his junior and senior highlights at LFA). It includes a dunk against Glenbrook South at end of the 2017 season. “It’s helpful to have a dunk on your highlight tape,” said the muscular 6-foot, 185-pound point guard. Juric’s multifaceted game is electric. It’s quick. Especially quick. “Matey really gets after it,” the 6-foot-5 Vukmanovic said. “He always goes as hard as he can.” Controlled fury. “He plays his heart out,” said Koncz. “Loves to compete. Always focused. Always on the go.” “He’s one of those guys who changes the momentum of a game,” the coach added. “He just makes plays. The rest of the team follows his lead.” Late last month, Juric got to play the game the Juric Way, when the Caxys hosted their end-ofthe-season and highly competitive Prep Showcase. The shootout had a couple of unique features: 20-minute halves and a 30-second shot clock. Pick up the tempo? You betcha. Count Juric in. All in. “Coach wants us to push the ball,” said Juric, in THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

a postgame interview earlier this season. “He wants us to keep defenses on their heels.” In the opening game of the Prep Showcase — a 79-69 victory over Southwest Academy of London, Ontario — Juric didn’t waste any time pushing the pace. He was a stormin’ Norman. On one offensive possession, Juric dove on the floor for a rebound and managed to flick it safely into the hands of a teammate. A few moments later, he followed up a teammate’s missed shot by flying to the rim and putting down a put-back. Juric’s three-point shot was a little off in this game, but he still managed to score 12 points and pull down nine rebounds. And somehow, with just over seven minutes left to play, Juric threw a gorgeous long bounce pass through a crowd of defenders in the lane, setting up a slam-dunk for freshman sensation Brandon Weston. “I think that the best part of my game is my vision,” said Juric, who ended his senior season averaging 12.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 2.1 steals per game. “You’ve got to get the ball to the shooters.” That feed to Weston was YouTube good. All this didn’t surprise the players and coaches of Southwest Academy. They know Juric. Juric has become a known commodity in Canada. He played his summer basketball with a highly regarded Canadian club team: Northern Lights. He helped them win back-to-back Adidas Invitational titles. “He’s a highly sought after player in Canada,” said Southwest Academy coach Kevin Barnes, noting that Juric has drawn interest from McGill University of Montreal. Juric basically leaves an impression wherever he plays. In late January, he tallied 16 points, seven rebounds and six assists in a 76-60 setback against host Highland Park. He didn’t escape the notice of HP head coach Paul Harris, who picked up his 300th career that night. “While scouting him, we were impressed with his energy on offense and defense,” Harris said. “He’s a strong player. A nice all-around player.” Juric plays the game in no-nonsense fashion. His fun-loving personality — and he’s got a good one — never seems to seep out during the live action. He takes the court and immediately turns into Mr. Stone Face. End-zone celebrations aren’t his deal. He plays with a killer instinct. Vukmanovic does the same. “We like to let the other team know that we’re out there,” said Vukmanovic. Like Juric, Vukmanovic is springy, fundamentally sound and totally engaged in the game.

Like Juric, he puts on his game face. “Usually, I’m pretty chill,” said Vukmanovic, who also has the frame and skillset to play at the next level. “I’m a happy guy. “[But] when I take the court, I feel like I have to prove myself,” he added. “I try to bring energy.” Koncz loves Vukmanovic’s demeanor and versatility. “He’s mature and real coachable,” said Koncz. “He’s always trying to correct things. “Vaso has a lot of the traits that you want in a player,” the coach added. Vukmanovic, who finished the season averaging 7.4 points and 4.5 rebounds per game, can knock down a three-pointer on one end and knock down a shot on the other. Midway through the fourth quarter against CICS Longwood, Vukmanovic, in one fell swoop, not only blocked the shot but also raced over to track up the rebound. “He’s got a real good feel for the game,” said Koncz. “And he’s an incredibly hard worker. “He’s one of those guys who is dripping sweat in the first minute of practice,” the coach added.

A tool shed of skills Driven Loyola Academy diver put the hammer down at state meet BY BILL MCLEAN SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

Sean O’Toole, a football player while growing up in Cincinnati and attending Miami (Ohio) University, is the father of Loyola Academy senior and three-time state diving qualifier Alex O’Toole. Sean O’Toole came up with a rather unique word for a bad dive. “My dad calls it a ‘bellywhopper,’ “ Alex O’Toole says. The son executed a combined 11 dives in two days at the state swimming and diving meet at Evanston Township High School on Feb 23-24, with none of them coming close to bellywhopper status. But Alex O’Toole used his belly — the fire in it, specifically — to nail the final dive of his prep career, an inward double-somersault tuck with a high degree of difficulty (2.8). The Rambler, a first-time state finalist, earned 47.6 points on the

“I hope he dives in college. Alex could dive for a Division I college, no problem.”

plunge to finish with an eighth-place total of 442.65. The third-place finisher at the previous weekend’s Niles North Sectional with a sturdy 491.75point effort, O’Toole had entered the state finals session in 10th place (320) after eight dives in the prelims on Feb. 23. “Alex showed some killer instinct on that final dive, a risky dive,” LA diving coach Tony D’Amico says. “What a great way to cap a career. That’s a dive, a moment, I’ll remember for years when I think of Alex, a wonderful kid to coach, a kid with great athleticism, strength and grace. “All season,” he adds, “that dive hadn’t been one of his stronger ones. But he was incredibly relaxed for someone who hadn’t competed [in the state finals] and incredibly determined to not mess up his final dive in high school. Super solid … Alex was super solid all season.” D’Amico, O’Toole explains, considered that 11th and final dive a “meet dive,” meaning O’Toole didn’t practice it as often as he did the other 10 dives on his list. “It’s always about the takeoff on that dive,” Loyola Academy’s Alex O’Toole performs a dive at the recent state meet at Evanston High School. says O’Toole, 17th at state as a junior and 21st PHOTOGRAPHY BY JOEL LERNER

in his first state-meet appearance two years ago. “If the takeoff is good, I’m good and feeling good about it. I made sure to throw it aggressively and spin fast. As I got ready to do it, I took it all in, the atmosphere, and I thought about everybody watching me — my family, my teammates and coaches, my friends.” O’Toole’s mother, LeeAnn, signed a young Alex up for diving lessons after a discussion about the sport with the mother of a gymnast. The gymnast was friends with Leilani, a gymnast and Alex’s sister. “I knew I loved it because every time I got out of the pool after a dive, I couldn’t stop smiling,” recalls O’Toole, who, as a Windy City Diving club member shortly after his 16th birthday, qualified for USA Diving Nationals (3-meter, 16-18 age group) two years ago. The boy went up against mostly young men in the battle of the boards and advanced from a zone meet with a ninth-place showing. O’Toole took a break from diving in his freshman year, opting to play club volleyball (as a libero) and volleyball for the LA’s freshman ‘A’ team (as a setter). “I returned to diving my sophomore year with more maturity,” says the resident of Edgebrook, a neighborhood on Chicago’s Northwest Side. “I had a better idea of what I had to do in practice to become the diver I wanted to be.” For O’Toole, an athlete with impressive air awareness, diving at the next level is, well, up in the air at this point. It will depend on the school he chooses to attend. “I hope he dives in college,” D’Amico says. “Alex could dive for a Division I college, no problem. He’d be an outstanding D-II or D-III diver if he ended up at either of those levels. He’s got the strength, the finesse and the work ethic to continue in the sport. His work ethic was outstanding in his years with us; I never had to ask him to do more to prepare for a meet.” O’Toole’s other passion outside the classroom is music. The four-year member of the school’s band and marching band is a percussionist; he plays the tenor drum for the marching crew. “Music,” he says, “will always be a big part of my life.” O’Toole lost a major figure in his life in 2013. His mother passed away then. “My mom was the bright light of my day,” O’Toole says. “Funny; she was so funny.” LeeAnn O’Toole’s reaction, to hearing her husband refer to a blown dive as a bellywhopper? Alex O’Toole has no doubt what it would have been. “My mom would have laughed every time he said it,” the son says. THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

Golden Apple finalist espouses Loyola Academy’s core mission they’ve been called to be, supporting their efforts to better the world. “As St. Ignatius [of Loyola] said, ‘Set the world on fire, dream big,’” Baal adds. Baal doused her original Dr. Kathryn “Katie” Baal’s hearty and highly post-St. Mary ’s [Indiana] contagious laugh fills the dining area at Fuel College plan to attend medical school after in Wilmette. The Loyola Academy principal — a St. teaching for two years Ignatius College Prep graduate and a former (1994-96) in the ACE science teacher at the school in Chicago — (Alliance for Catholic Education) program. Her first post: high school geometr y teacher, in Baton I was way away from Rouge, Louisiana. “I did not like gehome, dealing with ometry when I was a 100-degree student,” Baal admits. “I enjoyed algebra, temperatures and calculus. But I looked at the opportunity as a teaching a subject I challenge — to help kids didn’t particularly understand geometry and to like it better than I did. I was enjoy. scared, quite ner vous, on my first day. I was way away f rom home, dealing with 100-degree temperatures and teaching a subject I didn’t particularly enjoy.” had just finished recalling the day, in 2011, Baal, pulling when she was formally introduced to the down $600 per faculty and staff at the Jesuit college prep month, adjusted and school in Wilmette. “I am so happy,” Baal, beaming and upbeat, e m b r a c e d proclaimed to nearly 200 folks back then. “So the other “ hats” happy to be back here at … St. Ignatius.” that came Baal ’s audience responded with a snicker or with the position, two, followed by a steady stream of laughter. includ“I was told,” the 45-year-old educator says i n g to me, “that the mistake I made that day made s e r v i c e c l u b me look human.” The first female principal at L oyola l e a d e r Academy orders coffee, scrambled eggs and a n d a side of mixed f ruit at Fuel. I had invited Baal to join me for breakfast, in part, because of an apple — a Golden Apple, specifically. The leader of the diverse student body of 2,000, hailing f rom more the 75 Chicagoarea zip codes, emerged as one of seven Golden Apple’s Stanley C. Golder Leadership Award finalists last month for her initiative, dedication, perseverance and innovation. “ We’re going through a lot of exciting changes at Loyola Academy, involving mostly health and wellness,” Baal, a Wilmette resident since the start of the 2016-17 academic year, says, noting the school features 20 support groups, 21 counselors, a school psychologist and three literacy teachers. “Part of our mission is to help our students find balance. Kids these days … they’re trying to do it all, but that ’s not always possible. Our students are dedicated, passionate and committed. We’re helping them become the people BY BILL MCLEAN ILLUSTRATION BY BARRY BLITT

concession-stand volunteer at sporting events. “The students laughed at my accent, but I was fine with that,” Baal says. “I became a role model for my students; they respected me. I remember realizing, ‘I am here to do God’s work.’ I fell in love with teaching in Louisiana, and I love teenagers; adolescents bring me joy, especially when I get to see them thrive in their elements. I also find them fun and funny.” Baal earned her Master of Arts in Teaching degree f rom the University of Notre Dame and received her doctorate in Education Leadership and Policy Studies f rom Loyola University in Chicago. The native of Beverly (Chicago neighborhood) and diehard Chicago White Sox fan — she had tutored a daughter of former White Sox first baseman and hitting coach Greg Walker — was the science department chair at Downers Grove South High School for seven years before answering the call to shepherd teachers, staffers and learners at Loyola Academy. “I believe one of my strengths as a principal is seeing the big picture and bringing it to life. That ’s the science enthusiast in me.” Baal asked her faculty members last summer to read Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption, a book by Bryan Stevenson. Baal had read it on a beach in Michigan City, Indiana. Author James Clear’s summary of Stevenson’s book, in three sentences: “The true measure of our character is how we treat the poor, the disfavored, the accused, the incarcerated a n d t h e c on d e m n e d . Simply punishing the broken only ensures that they remain broken and we do, too. Each of us is more than the worst thing we’ve ever done.” Baal assigned Loyola Academy’s juniors and seniors to read the book last fall. “The book’s message,” Baal says, “is similar to our school’s mission. I knew, while reading it on that beach, I had to do what I could to get Bryan to speak at our school.” On November 30, 2 0 1 7 , a we e k a f t e r Thanksgiving Day, the Loyola Academy community gathered at the school to hear Br yan Stevenson speak. His words moved everyone. THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND
