In 1932, when Mercy graduated our first alumnae, we laid the foundation for our future. Since that time, we have welcomed over 13,000 graduates into the sisterhood of Mercy. A network of determined, passionate, and committed women who share similar values, attitudes, and approaches toward changing the world. Many of our graduates share much more than these valuable qualities – they share the bond of family; Mercy has become their legacy.
Through the years, thousands of students have followed in the footsteps of their mothers and grandmothers – walking the same halls, taking the same classes, and learning what it means to be a Mercy Girl. For decades, these Legacy Families have formed the backbone of our student body. For them, there is no question what school their daughters and granddaughters will attend – Mercy. Those students who are the first in their family to attend Mercy could very well be laying their own foundation for a brand-new Legacy Family. We are indebted to the love these families have of Mercy, and we want to share with the world some of these very special women. Therefore, we have created this display to show our appreciation and to honor 19 members of the Class of 2021, along with their mothers and/or grandmothers who are Mercy alumnae.
