Alumnae Board

Are you interested in strengthening alumnae connections and supporting Mercy students? Would you like to network with other Mercy alumnae? Gain professional skills? Make a difference for our alumnae network of 15,000+? Joining Mercy's Alumnae Board can help you achieve those goals.

The Alumnae Board works with Mercy High School to design and promote opportunities for alumnae to connect with one another and with current students. The board organizes events for alumnae and the Mercy community and raises funds for student scholarships on behalf of the Alumnae Association.

Events include a Legacy Dinner, Memorial Mass, Bunco Night, and Tea for Tuition. We volunteer at the fall and winter Open Houses and Graduation practice. We also help with the Reunion Weekend each fall. There are many ways to participate! Find out more and bring us your fresh ideas!

Interested alumnae may contact the Alumnae Office for more information. 248-476-3270 or
