Tea for Tuition

Mercy High School 13th Annual

The cherished tradition of Tea for Tuition continued on April 30, 2017 as 400 guests sipped aromatic teas and enjoyed culinary delights, while hearing powerful stories of Mercy Girl compassion and determination. Our generous guests and donors raised $32,000 for the Alumnae Association Tuition Assistance Fund. President Cheryl Delaney Kreger EdD '66 presented Sheri Johnson Crawley '90 with the 2017 Distinguished Alumna Award.
