Mrs. Margaret Staszak, Principal of Mt. Mercy Academy, announced today that two MMA students have been named a Commended Student in the 2012 National Merit Scholarship Program. Isobel Johnston, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. David Johnston of East Aurora, and Victoria Riso, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Riso of Hamburg placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2012 competition by taking the PSAT National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.  A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented by the principal to these scholastically talented seniors.         

Commended Students represent some of the most academically talented student in the United States. Mount Mercy Academy extends sincere congratulations to Isobel Johnston, Victoria Riso and their families.

 

"Mount Mercy has taught me some of the most important things in my life and I am so grateful for that. I know that incorporating the principles of a woman of Mercy has made me the best version of myself. I can only hope that in the future, I will continue to grow and teach others the valuable lessons that I was taught at Mount Mercy. While I have learned so many things here, the greatest thing by far that I have learned is that DNA does not always make a family, love makes a family and that is exactly what I have gained here, a second family."
