De La Salle Receives Mercy Foundation Grant

By December 9, 2022No Comments

Here Mr. Tom Caplis, Mercy Foundation chairman and Patrick Huels, Class of 1967 are joined by President Anne Marie Tirpak and Director of Development Iris Gist Cochran.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Mercy Foundation for their grant of $380,000 to establish a scholarship to continue the legacy of Sister Sheila Lyne and the Sisters of Mercy at De La Salle Institute.

Sister Sheila, a member of the Religious Sisters of Mercy for 67 years, led Chicago’s Mercy Hospital as president and CEO for decades. She was truly a dedicated leader who believed in providing outreach programs for the underserved, the poor in the community.

Recognizing Sister Sheila’s commitment and long-standing relationship with De La Salle, we are truly honored to carry on her legacy.
