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.

 

"Mercy is more than just a school. Mercy is my second home and a shoulder to lean on. Mount Mercy has given me the confidence and resources to pursue my passions and make the world a more inclusive place, propelling me to take strides into male-dominated fields. Mercy blessed me with an environment to grow intellectually and in the community, giving me the foundation to make a tangible impact while making lifelong friendships."
