Gehris joins alumni family as director of alumni relations

Mount Mercy is proud to welcome Mary Gehris as director of alumni relations. Gehris joined the Mount Mercy community last September and has since jumped into the varied and exciting world of working alongside Mount Mercy’s talented alumni base.

As director of alumni relations, Gehris will create ongoing communication and cultivation of alumni to build and sustain alumni relationships. She coordinates event planning, supervision of the alumni database, management of alumni recognition and awards programs and administration of the alumni board.

It’s a role she is excited to take on.

“Many of our alumni feel their lives were transformed while here,” says Gehris. “They were inspired by the University’s challenge to grow as individuals and to go out into the world and make a difference in the lives of others, which so many have. Mount Mercy is a growing and progressive network of alumni, faculty, students and friends, and I’m proud to be associated with this great institution.”
