“I consider my Gwynedd Mercy education the greatest gift my parents could have ever given to me. While at GMAHS, my love of music, theater, and tennis lead me to Glee Club, Chorale, performing in the musicals and plays, and playing on the tennis team. The Sisters of Mercy and teachers instilled a love of God and a passion for helping those in need, and I made loyal friendships during which continue to this day. To be able to send my daughters to this school and continue in the Legacy of Mercy is one of my life’s greatest gifts. I have no doubt the education, inspiration, love of God, and empowerment they receive at Gwynedd will continue for generations to come.”
