Antilles School Alumnus Honored as Outstanding Grad Student

May 17, 2007 — Antilles School graduate Jody A. Magras received an award for "outstanding graduate student in counseling" when he got his master's degree from Rollins College in Orlando, Fla., May 12.
"This award is presented to the graduate who has been nominated by the faculty and fellow students for outstanding academic ability, contributions to the department and to student colleagues, commitment to the profession and promise of career achievement," a school official said in honoring Magras, according to a news release.
Magras got his master of art degree in mental health counseling, graduating with honors with a 3.89 grade-point average out of a possible 4.0. Upon graduation, he accepted a counseling position at Stetson University in Florida.
"Jody continually illuminates the strengths of those with whom he works — creating and sharing new resources with fellow students, serving as a writing consultant at the Thomas P. Johnson Writing Center on campus, assisting faculty with ongoing research and developing new outreach programs," the official said in honoring Magras. "The director of he counseling center where Jody completed his year-long clinical internship said, 'Jody … sets a high standard of performance, collaborates and meets that standard without self-promotion.' At the conclusion of his internship, the center created a new full-time counseling position for him."
Jody was a graduate of Antilles School on St. Thomas and is the son of Dhalia Magras of Orlando, Fla., and former Sen. Clement "Cain" Magras of St. Thomas.
