Sr. Regina Marie Doelker, RSM '56 Giving Society

Sr. Regina enrolled in Our Lady of Mercy High School in 1952, graduating as valedictorian of her 1956 class. She joined the Sisters of Mercy that September. 
Sister Regina was appointed Principal of Mercy High School in Farmington Hills in 1986, a position she held until 2001. She then served as the first Mercy High School President from 2002 to 2010. In semi-retirement, Sister Regina enjoyed being a volunteer tutor at her beloved Mercy High School. During her professional life, Sister Regina completed a master's degree in mathematics at the University of Detroit and a master's degree in administration from the University of Dayton. In 1997, she was honored as Principal of the Year by the Catholic Association of Secondary Principals. She was a woman of deep faith and a capable and caring administrator. She was a faithful Detroit Tigers fan, a friend forever, one who was avid in preparing women who make a difference, as well as a truly remarkable woman.

Sr. Mary Victorine Rapin, RSM Giving Society

Sister Victorine was the first Assistant Principal of Mercy from 1946-1951 and she was appointed Principal in 1952. During her 17 years as Principal, Mercy High School expanded from 125 to 1,300 students and outgrew its location, prompting the move to its current site in Farmington Hills. Under Sister Victorine's guidance, the school developed a tradition of excellence in academic discipline. She initiated several customs that have become hallmarks of the school, including the graduation ceremony with white gowns and red roses. In 2002, Sister Victorine was inducted into Mercy High School's Hall of Fame where she was recognized for outstanding leadership in administration and for being the guiding force for the 'old' and the 'new' Mercy High School.
