The OLMA Salerno Society
The Our Lady of Mercy Academy Salerno Society was created in 2012 and is named in honor of Sister Mary Dolores Salerno, D.M., Our Lady of Mercy Academy’s first principal. It was through her efforts that OLMA introduced sports as an integral part of the school’s curriculum.
The mission of The Salerno Society is twofold: First, to honor Sister Dolores for her incredible commitment to OLMA as principal. Secondly, to pay tribute to the many others who have contributed to the growth of our school as athletes, scholars, teachers, coaches, benefactors, and career professionals.
Recognized for the profound impact they’ve had on the young women of OLMA, this year’s slate of honorees includes:
