Mount Mercy Academy Thanks Generous South Buffalo Merchants

At a recent Mount Mercy Academy Varsity Basketball game the Mount Mercy Academy Athletic Boosters thanked and acknowledged several local businesses.  For the past several years these generous community members have supported the Boosters in their efforts to assist the Magic Athletic program. Through the contributions of the merchants and the Booster club, many enhancements have been made.

    Honored by the Boosters were Matt Burke of Burkey's Sports Ware, Dave Powers of Imperial Pizza, Mike Burns of Adolph's Old First Ward Tavern, Tommy Cowan of Doc Sullivans, Pat Reid  and Mike Bean of Potters Field and John Ashe.  These individuals and their businesses have been long time friends of the Mount Mercy Academy Athletic Department.  They have supported the concessions at the volleyball and basketball games and have provided prizes for the Booster Club sponsored Trivia Night and other group fundraisers.  

    The Booster Club, thanks in part to these merchants, have provided new uniforms for four of the athletic teams, equipment for three other teams, repaired, repainted and refinished the gymnasium floor and provided a sound system and new banners for the gym.

    Booster Club members Bob Hughes and Mike Lempko presented plaques to the donors as a token of the Mount Mercy Booster Club’s appreciation for their support.

"Mount Mercy has positively changed my life forever. Through the inviting community, I was able to grow as a woman, as a daughter, as a friend, and as a member of society. Throughout my time here I have gained an education in both academic areas and life in general through the school's ongoing efforts to educate students on gender inequality, racial injustice, and environmental crisis'. Furthermore, Mercy has given me the space to gain confidence that 4 years ago I never would have guessed I would have. Mount Mercy has helped me take that initial step toward becoming the strong woman of color I am today. At Mercy you are more than just a student, you are whoever you wish to be."

"My future, success, and the ability to be an empowered woman in society come from Mount Mercy. My school is a strong foundation for my role in life. From attending Mount Mercy, I can say with confidence, that I will graduate with the mindset that I can accomplish anything. Mercy is my home and my sanctuary to be whoever I want. Mount Mercy has been bringing forth generations of strong intellectual women into the world, and I am more than honored to be one of them. Mercy teaches girls more than academics, but also about the world around us. As a mercy community, we give back to the world because it is our home. From my four years at Mercy, I have been educated on pushing for equality and peace and the understanding that there is no limit to what I can do. I have the confidence to go out in the world and make a difference because being a Mercy girl has given me that opportunity. "

"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."
