Did you know that the Tea for Tuition has provided more than $80,000 in tuition assistance for many Mercy students?
The 7th Annual Mercy Alumnae Association Tea for Tuition was held April 17th, 2011. It was the largest event yet with 270 women of Mercy enjoying plenty of good food and conversation. The Mercy gymnasium was transformed into a Middle Eastern tea parlor with gorgeous plates and teapots, fabulous flowers, and tasty treats.
President Dr. Cheryl Delaney Kreger '66 presented the 2011 Distinguished Alumna Award to Luanne Thomas Ewald '87. Luanne reflected about how Mercy fostered her leadership potential and spoke about her career influences and memories of Mercy.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who attended and donated time, talents, and auction items. The Alumnae Association has awarded 15 scholarships to deserving Mercy students for the 2011 - 2012 school year. Please contact the Alumnae Office at 248.476.3270 or email@example.com for additional information or to be an ABSENTea donor.
