Loyola’s Sister Jean has another new title. She’s listed in People Magazine’s “100 Reasons to Love America This Year.”

People released their annual list Monday and Sister Jean is listed as No. 24.

The magazine said:

She’s 98, a nun and the good-luck charm for Loyola University’s men’s basketball team.

The 98-year-old nun stole the spotlight earlier this year as the good-luck charm for The Ramblers basketball team and their Cinderella story during March Madness.

Sister Jean and the team have already been honored by the state and city of Chicago.
