Mercy hosts award’s night

 Sara Ruberg ’18

  Recently, Mercy held the 2014-2015 Academic Achievement Awards in the Sister Mary Carlos theater! The Academic Awards were held on Sunday, September 13th instead of during school hours. Only recipients of the awards received an invitation to the event.

   Freshman, Sophomores, and Juniors from last year were honored for achievements in science, math, French, or Spanish. Students were also recognized for awards they received outside of Mercy. Congratulations to each outstanding student and their accomplishments!
