ercy Day is an annual, worldwide recognition of the foundress of the Sisters of Mercy, Catherine McAuley, and her mission to serve those in need and her commitment to education.


Celebrating Mercy Day are, from left – Seniors Robin Vernon of Philadelphia, Annie Butler of Rosemont, and Mary Kate Sweeney of Wynnewood. On Mercy Day this year, the MMA school community embraced the schoo’s year-long theme “AdventuroUS in Mercy – No Us and Them, there is only Us” with a liturgy and assembly based on social justice. Appropriately, the theme also connects to an annual project called “The Mercy Girl Effect,” which is a student-run program that benefits women and girls in need throughout the world. The MMA community has been involved in “The Mercy Girl Effect,” a project combining the efforts of Mercy schools across the nation, for several years. Together, a group of Mercysponsored schools collaborate to improve the quality of life for females in developing nations with a special emphasis on girls and education. For the 2018-19 school year, students will focus their fundraising efforts for development in the following five countries and four continents: the Philippines, Kenya, Panama, Lebanon, and Haiti.

The Haverford School’s Student Publications Earn National Acclaim he Haverford School’s student newspaper, The Index, earned a silver medal from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA), a gold award from the Pennsylvania School Press Association, and an international second place award from the Quill and Scroll

Pegasus, the School’s literary magazine, was awarded a silver medal from CSPA. A Pennsylvania School Press Association judge remarked of The Index, “Overall, the publication is a smart, classy, engaging newspaper that offers up interesting content, relevant news, great photographs, and thoughtful writing. The content is mature, relevant, engaging, thought provoking, and delivered with superb skill and insight by the writers. The topics and accompanying images display a wide range of diversity and are excellent examples of inclusive media.” The 2017-18 Index was helmed by Editors-in-Chief Sam Turner ’18 (a guest columnist for the Yale Daily News), P.J. Rodden ’18, and senior Nick Chimicles. “I am certainly pleased with our results, but we can do even better,” said Chimicles. “Our goal this year is to incite productive debate to break down the barriers and taboos of our school. Then, through individual profiles that shine a light on the amazing people in our midst, we may mend our community together. To achieve this goal, we need to have a great paper in writing and design and visuals.” 2017-18 Pegasus Editors-in-Chief were senior Kenneth Pham and Obaida Elamin ’18. They helped to edit and create the spring issue with a new cadre of young designers. “My hope this year is that we further connect the photography and literary works,” said Pham. “In essence, I want this year’s book to be a coherent conceptual album rather than a disconnected album of hits. This cohesion between the writing and the photography and a common theme will truly put us ahead of the competition.”

So much has been destroyed.” In the Uta Fellechner has initiated two cross-cultural words of Fellechner, “the fragile beauty of life in all projects with Native American activist poet-artist its human and non-human forms haunts me, but so Chrystos and Chinese American artist-activist Lily does the human potential for corruption, injustice, Yeh. She also organized and participated in two and violence.” panel discussions of two national conferences of Fellechner was a child refugee – born in an air raid, she became a teenage immigrant – a wanderer in strange lands. In the words of the artist, the Women’s Caucus for Art at Moore College of Art. “for me, the Nazi holocaust in the land of my birth and the terrors of America’s history loom large in my consciousness. The following words by the poet Nelly Sachs resonate with me: ‘I hold instead of a homeland the transformations of the world.’ I know there will be no future unless we change our lives.” Fellechner looks to art for stark, spiritual truth – not decorative beauty. The early self-portrait The Medusa and I holds a key to how she works. Fellechner says “I think of the snakePHILADELPHIA AND THE MAIN LINE’S FAVORITE WEEKLY headed Medusa from Greek mythology as a maligned feminist protector of life and an agent of change. Sometimes I refer to my work as ‘meta-ethical images of survival.’” Uta Fellechner is an experimental photographer and sculptor who has lived in Philadelphia for over 30 years. Her background includes working for the S.R. Guggenheim Museum


Homeland Security Expert to Discuss Cyber Security at Immaculata University ybersecurity expert Franco Cappa will be the keynote speaker for Immaculata’s 2nd semi-annual Preparedness & Resilience Speaker Series on Thursday, October 25 at 6 p.m. in the Green Room. During Cappa’s presentation, titled “Homeland Security Perspectives for Building Cyber Security Capacity, Capability, & Resilience,” he will describe the current landscape of threats to the nation’s infrastructure – including our election system – and how education and joint efforts between government and the private sector can protect everyone from cyber criminals. He will provide a Q&A following his presentation. The event is free and open to the public. “We are very fortunate to have Mr. Cappa as the next speaker in our semi-annual series exploring the intersection of cybersecurity and emergency preparedness,” states George M. Schwartz, Ed.D., an assistant professor of Leadership, and director of Immaculata’s bachelor’s degree programs in Cybersecurity and Emergency Planning & Management. “As the regional Cyber Security Advisor for the Department of Homeland Security, he helps direct and coordinate the federal support to protect the cyber components of our critical infrastructure in the six state region. His insights on the threats to the upcoming election are sure to be very illuminating.” Americans often take for granted such everyday luxuries like clean water from the tap and energy supplied to homes. But what if the nation’s infrastructure suddenly stopped working? The proliferation of cyber-attacks threatens America’s infrastructure and institutions, including the fidelity of the U.S. election process. The threats are nefarious, evolving and nonstop. The field of cybersecurity is constantly adapting in response, and new cybersecurity degree programs, including Immaculata’s bachelor degree in Cybersecurity are being offered to meet the demand for cybersecurity professionals. Franco Cappa is the Cyber Security Advisor with the Office of Cybersecurity & Communications at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. He supports the Department of Homeland Security’s mission of strengthening the security and resilience of the nation’s critical infrastructure. In addition to preparedness, mitigation and response, Cappa’s department also provides cyber security resources, including assessments, to the nation’s 16 critical infrastructure sectors and state, local, tribal and territorial government entities. As a certified information systems security professional, Cappa has over 30 years of experience in the information and communications technology industry, mostly devoted to security in both the cyber and physical environments. Prior to joining the Department of Homeland Security, Cappa gained experience in various technical and nontechnical industries such as chief information security officer for an intergovernmental organization and also as director of security services within higher education among other positions. Lending his expertise, Cappa has worked in the management, design, architecture and implementation of security solutions for multi-million dollar projects for customers in the Americas, Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Immaculata is a Catholic, coeducational institution of higher learning. Established by the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM), Immaculata has been providing a quality education to students since 1920. The University offers academic programs at the associate, baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral levels. Additionally, Immaculata offers 23 NCAA Division III varsity sports to student-athletes. Immaculata is located on 375 acres on the Main Line between Malvern and Exton, 30 miles west of Philadelphia.
