On Saturday, March 14th, Kayleigh Mighells, Emily Burns, Grace Ippolito and Yamilet Montanez represented Mount Mercy Academy at the Junior High South All County Chorus Concert held at Iroquois Middle School. The four Mercy freshmen were part of a 90 voice chorus consisting of students selected by their teachers from eight school districts in the Southtowns.

Under the direction of Keith Ersing, the students rehearsed for two days to fine tune the five selections for the concert. The group sang "Home on the Range", "O Nata Lux", "O My Love is Like Red, Red, Rose", "Seasons of Love" and "He Never Failed Me Yet." John Mitton was the piano accompanist. These talented musicians gave an incredible performance to a sold out audience.

"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."
