Today, representatives from Marian University visited Mercy McAuley to surprise two seniors – Emily Parsons and Katherine Noe – with the big news that they’ve been awarded a San Damiano Scholarship! Emily’s and Katherine’s parents were on hand for the big surprise, along with Mercy McAuley President Patty Ragio, Principal Connie Kampschmidt, and Emily's and Katherine's counselor, Wendy Long. The San Damiano Scholars Program challenges students to explore their vocation in a theological context and encourages them to make commitments of service to their churches and communities. San Damiano Scholars are students who have demonstrated academic performance and have exhibited leadership in church, religious, or community service activities. Congratulations to Emily and Katherine!
