A Note from Amy Amador

In passing the baton at Mercy Education Project, I would like to thank MEP friends for their support over the past decade and introduce Kathryn Tanner as MEP’s new executive director. I’ve gotten to know Kathy in recent weeks and am confident she will continue the great work of the organization. She has great energy and passion for MEP’s mission plus a wealth of leadership experience. MEP is in good hands.

After ten years, I felt it was the right time for a transition. I'll be exploring new opportunities, helping with the transition, and taking time for reflection. MEP does great work and I am grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of the mission. I look forward to MEP continuing to help women and girls discover what is possible for themselves through education. Wishing all the best for the future!

-Amy Amador, Mercy Education Project (2006-2016)

Here are some recent comments from community members, volunteers, students and others who are commenting on Mercy Education Project.

"There is no more important work being done than that of Mercy Education Project, which is helping to craft the lives of future women leaders. I am so proud to be a part of its mission and purpose. MEP deserves the support of the entire state."

"We can't support every good cause, but Mercy Education Project achieves such profound academic results within its small budget …its programs must be sustained.  Too many young girls and women are in need of MEP’s services – they are counting on us.”

Denise Starr, Director of Human Resources
