by cnewman

Olivia Takacs has earned a micro-grant from the Summer Institute of Buffalo for Human Rights and Genocide Studies. In the photo to the left, she is seen receiving a check for $100 from Associate Timothy J. Redmond. This money will be used for expenses to run a Student Event that will be held in April 2015 (Date TBD) The proceeds of the student run event will help South Sudanese girls attend a Mercy sister school. Each $50 raised provides the annual tuition for one female student. If you are interested in more information on the Summer Institute of Buffalo, you can find them on Facebook and Twitter. If you are interested in helping in any way with the Student Fundraiser, please contact Olivia at Mount Mercy Academy.

"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."
