Mercy Girls do remarkable things in the world. They build business empires, fight for the disadvantaged, defend our country, volunteer countless hours in service of others, and so much more. At Mercy, we want to honor and recognize the achievements of our amazing graduates. We do so through the Alumnae Circle of Mercy Award and Alumnae Service of the Year Award. Each of these distinguished awards are bestowed upon alumnae who have characterized themselves as leaders in their field, or by their personal accomplishments, or by the time they spend helping others.
We know there are thousands of Mercy Girls across the globe who are deserving of these honors. Let us know who you think we should consider! A committee of Mercy Advancement staff members and a member of the Board of Trustees will review the nominations. The recipients will be presented with their awards at the Alumnae Reunion in October.
