Student Council

Student Council Leads the Way

Student Council members are students who agree to assume leadership roles within the school community. As leaders, Student Council members are expected to exhibit responsibility, school spirit, respect, and a commitment to service. They are the link between the administration/faculty and their fellow students and must show support for both. They strive to accomplish their best, academically and socially, for themselves and others.

Merion Mercy is running daily events, which will culminate in "Night for the Nations" mixer to raise money for "The Mercy Girl Effect." This year, students will focus their fundraising efforts to support women in developing nations around the world. Each grade level plus faculty and staff focus on a different country: The freshmen support the people of the Philippines; sophomores, Kenya; juniors, Panama; seniors, Lebanon; and the faculty and staff support Haiti.

2018: Sugu Fundraiser
Stand for Sugu (a dancing/standing marathon) hosted by Merion Mercy’s Student Council was held Friday March 16, from 6 p.m.-10 p.m. 100% of the proceeds go towards "The Mercy Girl Effect," which has committed to build a school in Sugu, Nigeria.

2017: Night for Nigeria
In March 2017, Merion Mercy ran a series of week-long fund-raising events that culminated in "Night for Nigeria- Dance for a Chance" event that raised over $10,000 to afford mud huts for girls in Nigeria. Establishing a home address then allowed these students to obtain education in their local schools. 


Merion Mercy hosted a friendly musical competition and fundraiser called ZAMBELLA to raise money to build a secondary school for adolescent girls in Zambia. The event exceeded the fundraising goal and brought in more than $10,600 for the project.

2015: SuDash 5K Run/Walk
The SuDash was a 5K run/walk fundraiser that took place on the Merion Mercy fields. That year, $10,000 was raised to support food and water security to the community of families and students at the Mercy-sponsored school in southern Sudan.
