Three Mercy Grads Now College Graduates!!

One of the things that we always emphasize to the girls who go through the Mercy program is our desire to see them further their education. I am so proud to tell you about three beautiful young women that have just notified me in the last couple of weeks about their college graduations – Bethany Solomon, Tina Brown, and Devin Donohue.

I just received this great graduation announcement from Bethany Solomon letting me know that she will be graduating from the Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine on Thursday, May 13th. I had the privilege of visiting Bethany on the Texas A&M campus about three years ago when I was in the area. We had dinner together and then went to a basketball game – it was so fun! I am so proud of Bethany and how she is using her training to even go on mission’s trips overseas to help those who are less fortunate. It has been our joy to sponsor her on the mission’s trips that she has taken through Texas A&M since graduating from Mercy in 2006. When Bethany was in the program, she used to take care of Jude, our Mercy dog. I couldn’t resist scanning this announcement that shows Bethany with her white veterinary coat on – so exciting!!! It’s so fun to see her dreams coming true. Not only is she graduating, but she will also be getting married in June to a wonderful Godly young man that I had the chance to meet and approve of (ha!). Congratulations, Bethany! I am so proud of you on both of these accomplishments!

I also want to brag on another graduate named Tina Brown, also a Mercy graduate from 2006. Tina just sent me an announcement letting me know that she is graduating from John Brown University and will be attending graduate school at Richmont University in Atlanta where she will be pursuing her Masters in Counseling Psychology. It is so cool to me that Tina has chosen to go into counseling and psychology based on her own personal experience and the issues she had to so courageously face during her time at Mercy. I know she will be a great counselor! Way to go, Tina! I am so very proud of you!

Last but not least, I want to tell you about a beautiful young woman, Devin Donohue, who graduated from Mercy in 2007. Devin just graduated from Sullivan University with an Associate degree in Marketing Management. Devin has recently started her own photography business, Legacy Photography, where she is already able to put her degree to work! Devin also plans to do some traveling now that she is finished with school and hopes to go on a mission’s trip soon! Well done, Devin! I am so proud of you!

Please pray for God’s continued blessings over them as they transition into this next season of life. I am so excited to celebrate Bethany, Tina, and Devin on their awesome accomplishments!!!

Have a great night!
