Special to Detroit Free Press

Julia Bishop is Miss Volleyball for 2020 — but if she had her way, she’d change the title to "Miss Team Volleyball."

Quiz Bowl participated in two national tournaments. On November 14, Mercy competed in their first-ever National Literature Challenge. The team of Caitlyn Begosa '22, Caitlin Condon '23, Carly Madden '22, Caroline Turco '23 finished in 6th place nationally!

The M Zone Athletic Training Facility was named in memory of Sr. Regina Marie Doelker, RSM '56. Last week, we made it official! She served Mercy as a Math teacher from 1964-1974, Principal from 1986-2001 and President from 2002-2010. She was a strong leader who served Mercy with compassion and engaged people through personal connection. Thank you to all of our generous donors who made the renovation of this space possible!

Dalia Housey '21 is a recipient of the 2020 Optimist Leadership Award sponsored by the Farmington/Farmington Hills Breakfast Optimist Club. Dalia was selected because of her commitment to leadership and promoting a positive message of well being throughout our Mercy community, especially during this difficult time. Dalia has held a student government position since her freshman year at Mercy, and now serves as the Executive Board Chair of the Student Council.

Our beloved Receptionist Mary Harkness '70 is celebrating 50 years of dedication to Mercy High School!

"Mercy wouldn't be Mercy without Ms. Harkness,” says Nicole Yaekle '20.

We know many of you share these sentiments.
