Looking for Alumnae to Interview
Women of Mercy are having an amazing impact on the world as mothers, business women, entrepreneurs and their jobs range from educators, health care givers, philanthropists, artists, lawyers, and so much more. Mercy wants to spotlight your involvement through articles. If you have a story to tell or know someone who has had an interesting journey contact Deborah Daley, Communications and Marketing Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once a month we will post names of Mercy graduates who have passed away. This list is compiled from official notifications and will only include Women of Mercy. If you have a loved one who passed away, please contact Naomi Chambers, Database Coordinator, or call her at 402.553.9424.
