FIESTA 2021: Saints & Superheroes

February 20, 2021

FIESTA (Friends In Earnest Supporting Tuition Assistance) is Mercy’s annual dinner auction. FIESTA plays a very important role in Mercy’s ongoing commitment to empower young women to achieve their full potential in a diverse, supportive and academic-centered community. The funds raised during FIESTA are a key component in our ability to continue our long-standing Negotiated Tuition Program, respecting each family’s unique needs and income. Eighty-two percent of our families benefit annually when $1.99 million in tuition assistance is granted.  

This year's Cor Misericordiae Award, the school's highest honor, will be given to Sr. Corrine Connelly '58. Sr. Corrine was principal of Mercy High School from 1978-1988.

Serving as this year's Mistress of Ceremonies is Kayla Thomas-Haire ’93, Media Relations Coordinator at Nebraska Medicine.

Eric and Nicole Liebig Lakeman '92 are this year's FIESTA chairs.
