MERCY LEARNING CENTER OF BRIDGEPORT INCORPORATED
November 28, 2012

I have been tutoring at Mercy for 8 years. Each of my students has come from a different background with different complications in their lives. Each has found themselves, later in life, serious about getting the education that they found unnecessary earlier. They came back with a renewed, mature and unwavering desire to learn. Sometimes they have had to overcome incredible obstacles just to come to class. At times I have seen an almost physical transformation with my students. They gain confidence, stand straighter, look you in the eye, and raise their life objectives. It is amazing and gratifying to be able to be a part of this process.

I have also served on the board of Mercy for 6 years and have held positions as Treasurer and Chair of the Finance and Audit Committees. My background is in corporate finance and I know how a good organization should be run. I can tell you that Mercy is incredibly well run, organized, financially sound, thoughtful and caring. I have every reason to believe Mercy will be around for the next 100 years, doing everything they can do to reduce the need for the long lines that they experience on registration day every fall.
