Grand Knight Robert Smering of the Msgr. Nash Council #3875 Knights of Columbus and Council Chaplain Fr. Joe Bayne are shown presenting this year's Jim and Joan Brogan Memorial Scholarship to Emma Alvarado during last month's 6th Annual Golf Raffle. Applicants were required to be local Catholic School 8th Graders' that have been accepted at a Catholic High School for the 2012-13 school year; and selection was based on academics, involvement in their community and composition of a short essay. Congratulations Emma!


"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."
