PHILADELPHIA – Mercy Vocational High School students met with more than 150 business people during the fourth annual corporate REACH Breakfast Oct. 8. Eight students moved the crowd to a standing ovation by sharing stories of their past, current accomplishments and future aspirations. Each student represented one of MVHS’s career and technical education shops, including business, carpentry, computer technology, cosmetology, culinary, electricity and the nursing assistant training program.
For 60 Years, Mercy Vocational High School has provided a values-based education to those students whose educational and career goals are best served by a quality, comprehensive career and technical academic secondary school program. Students acquire marketable skills that enable them to enter into their career vocation immediately or to pursue post-secondary education. Moreover, their values-based education helps students to develop an attitude of service to others in the workplace.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
