Men & Women of Mercy Award

In honor and recognition of those in the Mercy community who have demonstrated the highest levels of long-term, continual support for Mother of Mercy High School, the school was pleased to introduce its most prestigious benefactor award, "The Men and Women of Mercy," in 2013.

Criteria and Selection Process

The President's Advancement Panel reviews Mercy constituents annually according to consistency and length of support, level of generosity through resources and/or time, impact on the programs and students of the school as well as breadth of Mercy charism and influence through the Mercy family. Candidates are selected by the panel as having demonstrated a minimum of five years of outstanding giving to the school. Those selected for this award are determined to be the premier leaders behind the success of our institution and by their loyalty and exceptional commitment, have done the greatest good in strengthening the mission and values of Mother of Mercy High School.

Every year, up to two members may be inducted as "The Men and Women of Mercy" at  Mercy's Gala Auction.
