Fecio Commended



                Mrs. Margaret Staszak, principal of Mount Mercy Academy, announced today that Mount Mercy senior Madeline Fecio, daughter of Mrs. and Mr. John Fecio III of Buffalo has been named a Commended Student in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented to Madeline, a scholastically talented senior.  

                Commended Students placed among the top fifty thousand of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2020 competition by taking the 2018 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Commended Students represent some of the most academically talented student in the United States. 

    Fecio is a member of National Honor Society, Pure Magic Show Choir and is a section editor of the yearbook.  She is also a student ambassador and a perennial name on First Honors. Mount Mercy Academy extends sincere congratulations to Madeline Fecio and her family.

"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."
