Mercy Girls Make Change Happen

The Mercy Girl Effect Global Leadership Conference was recently held at Gwynedd Mercy University for students from Mercy high schools around the US and Northern Ireland. Representing Merion Mercy Academy were ​​Abby Adamczyk ‘25 and Kaitlin Angelucci ‘25. The four day conference centered on developing awareness of individual styles of leadership and how they contribute to overall team/group success. In addition, the eight participating Mercy high schools announced the results of their 2023-24 school year joint fundraising efforts—$56,684.67—for projects aimed at providing girls, their own ages, an education in places such as Kenya, Nigeria, Afghanistan and S. Sudan. 

Sr. Deirdre Mullan, a Sister of Mercy who works at the United Nations, presented a challenge to the girls to see what they can do in the coming school year. The goal of the project, known as the Young Mother’s Club, is to help a Sister of Mercy in Kenya who works with and financially supports teen mothers who become pregnant due to sexual abuse and who want to raise their child while still being able to attend school. 

Merion Mercy Academy looks forward to contributing to this year's project.
