Mount Mercy Continues Its Commitment to Service

                Mount Mercy Academy has made it a goal to increase its commitment to community service.  The school’s latest project was called “A Moving Experience”.  Amy Mazur Griggs, a 1988 graduate of Holy Angels Academy came up with the idea and contacted Mount Mercy to see if the community would like to participate.  To celebrate her family’s move from Minnesota to Connecticut the family decided to collect items along the way to donate to My Sister’s Place, a homeless shelter in Hartford, Connecticut.  The shelter primarily services women. David Griggs, Amy’s husband is a native of Indiana and his elementary school also participated in the campaign.  Amy Griggs knows firsthand how special an all girls school education is.  She contacted Mount Mercy Academy Principal Margaret Staszak and Staszak enthusiastically agreed to lead the Buffalo Drive. 

                In addition to supporting this worthwhile cause, the effort also encompasses two of the Critical Concerns of the Sisters of Mercy, concern for women and deepening the community’s response to racism.

"Attending Mount Mercy Academy is one of the best decisions I could have made. Since day one they have challenged me academically, to strive and succeed. For the past two years at Mount Mercy, I received so much help from all the teachers. They are always open to help me with any questions I have. My teachers have even taken time whenever they can to help me to do well with upcoming tests and quizzes. With their help I have been on both honor rolls, and have been a scholar athlete."
