Meet Vincent Vento

Vincent VentoWhile at Waldron Mercy, Vincent’s teachers challenged him academically with assignments like the research paper. He raised the bar, challenging himself even further, by choosing topics such as stem cell research to report on. He also recognizes how his teachers have broadened his horizons, like Ms. Flanagan who introduced him to Vincent to public speaking. “Public speaking is something I have enjoyed, hope to do professionally and for which I have been academically rewarded.”

Meet Jimmy King

Jimmy KingThe spirit of Mercy, an ever-present energy at Waldron Mercy, is the thing that Jimmy says he’ll miss the most about WMA. One way he remembers witnessing the spirit of Mercy was in the compassion shown toward new students by being inclusive. Such compassion is something he felt himself as a transfer student in the fourth grade, and something he certainly paid forward. He also says he’ll miss Mr. Fogarty, his favorite teacher, who inspired him to work through adversity.

Meet Agustin Aliaga

Agustin AliagaLike most of our Waldron Mercy alumni, Agustin says the thing he’ll miss most are the fabulous teachers. How could he not! It’s no wonder that one of his most rewarding assignments was public speaking during a forensics competition, moderated by his favorite teacher Ms. Flanagan. There’s no doubt that she and Agustin’s other teachers aided in preparing him to, as he so eloquently summarized, “live life with integrity and strong with ethics.”

Meet Jack Gorman

Jack GormanOne thing that had a big impact for Jack was his science teacher, Mrs. Pierce, who helped foster his love of the subject: “My favorite subject in Waldron Mercy is definitely science. I believe that this is because of my teacher that I have had for two years in science who is Ms. Pierce. This had a big impact on why I like science because of her enthusiasm and her energy towards science which I think has transferred over to me.”
