120 Mercyhurst students honored for ‘Living the Mission’

An estimated 120 Mercyhurst College students from the Erie and North East campuses will be honored during the annual “Living the Mission” awards on Monday, Dec. 13, from 3:30-5 p.m. in Mercy Heritage Room on the Erie campus.

The four-year-old tradition, held in connection with the Sisters of Mercy Foundation Day (Dec. 12), is designed to recognize students for outstanding service and for giving witness to the qualities espoused in the Mercyhurst College mission statement, including excellence, compassion, and creativity.

Nominated by faculty, staff and administrators, the students receive certificates of commendation during the reception, hosted by Mercy Institute director Sister Kathleen Marie Leap, RSM, Sister Geraldine Rosinski, RSM, director of campus ministry; and Sister Michele Marie Schroeck, RSM, director of service learning.
