Mercy Medical Center - Des Moines has entered into a non-binding Memo of Understanding with Newbury Living to redevelop a building formerly known as Mercy Court, for future use by Mercy College students for apartments. In addition, Newbury Living is creating a 20,000 square foot building on the site for College offices and classrooms with the architectural help of Simonson & Associates. Newbury is working to have student apartments available and open the new building by fall 2017.
Through the Mitten Tree, the Mercy College community lives out the legacy of the Sisters of Mercy by helping students who might otherwise be unable to provide gifts to their minor children during the holiday season.
In this third issue of VitalPeople, that is arriving in many of your mailboxes this week, we wish to tell the stories of those who are representative of the Mercy College Campus Community – students, alumni, faculty, staff, donors and employers. Each is a steward of our legacy. Some of them represent multiple facets of our community e.g. faculty/donor or alumni/employer. All have a valuable story to share, yet are also representative of the many others in our Community who share similar lives and stories that make this Campus Community so special and nurturing.
As you read their stories during the coming holiday break, I hope you will see their zest for life and their belief in using their God-given talents for the betterment of our students and the communities within which they choose to live and serve. We are grateful to have them as travel companions!
