Mercy parents Eric and Nicole Liebig Lakeman ’92 have accepted the invitation of Sr. Delores Hannon, RSM, President, Mercy High School, to be the FIESTA Chairs for 2020. In this capacity, they will be responsible for organizing and running the school's largest fundraiser on February 29, 2020, at the Omaha Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District. The dinner-auction is managed by hundreds of volunteers and features items to bid on including vacation packages, concert and event tickets, collectibles, gift baskets, gift certificates, and much more.
The Lakemans have been married for 22 years. Their daughter, Macy, is a sophomore, a member of the Dance Team, and a Student Ambassador. Their son, Colin, is a sophomore at Creighton University and is studying Business on a pre-dental track.
Eric is general contractor and owner of L & L Custom Builders, a residential construction and remodeling company. Nicole manages the financial and administrative side of L & L and is also employed at Creighton University in the Department of Mathematics.
Although the family is busy with work and school activities, they enjoy boating and entertaining family and friends.
“As a Mercy alumna, I greatly value the education I received at Mercy and thought being the Chairs of this prestigious event would be a wonderful way to get involved, meet others, and give back so that other young women may receive all that Mercy has to offer,” Nicole said.
