Mount Mercy Academy Visits Historical Seneca Falls

Six Mount Mercy Academy students recently traveled to Seneca Falls, New York as part of their membership in the school’s Women in Social Sciences Program.  The visit was part of the First Amendment First Vote Girls Leadership Program. This program is a non-partisan civic engagement and leadership program for girls.  It is a part of the Erie County Commission on the Status of Women. 

    Seniors Chloe McHugh Freedenberg (Lakeview) and Elizabeth Higgins (Buffalo), junior Anani DeBose (Buffalo) and sophomores Adrianna Awald (Gowanda), Lily Janik (Angola) and Dominique Khoury (Buffalo) represented Mount Mercy

    The group toured the Women's Rights National Park, the National Women's Hall of Fame, Elizabeth Cady Stanton's home, and visited the church where Alice Paul first presented the initial draft of the proposed Equal Rights Amendment.  


"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."
