Mount Mercy Announces 2020 National Honor Society Members

by Pat Burns

               Although their induction ceremony has been delayed due to the onset of Covid-19 in March, Mount Mercy Academy would like to recognize the newest selections to the McAuley Chapter of the National Honor Society.  The students are now seniors, but were selected to the august body last March.

                Seven students from Buffalo were tapped for membership: Kathryn Bednarz, Emma Lewis, Madeline Lickfeld, Megan Reilly, Mary Snyder, Victoria Trzaska and Hannah Vattes.

                Three West Seneca and three Orchard Park residents were also chosen to National Honor Society.  Zoe Gray, Olivia Jarosz, and Emily Kessler of West Seneca and Gianna Lauciello, Claire Mullen, and Emily Rhoads of Orchard Park are also new members.  Angelina Larivey and Rheanna Welsh of Lackawanna, Megan Jozwiak of Springville and Megan Quinn and Catherine Zak complete the newest members of Mount Mercy’s chapter of National Honor Society.

                Selection into the National Honor Society is based on scholarship, service, character and leadership.  A formal induction ceremony will be scheduled when the Covid-19 situation allows it.

"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."
