Mount Mercy and Rockwell Collins celebrate partnership

Mount Mercy alumni employed by Rockwell Collins gathered for a reception at the Mount Mercy Presidential Home last September. President Blake and Rockwell Collins CEO Clay Jones co-hosted the event, which celebrated the unique partnership between the two organizations.

More than 500 alumni are employed by Rockwell Collins in Cedar Rapids alone, adding a strong dimension to Mount Mercy’s local economic impact. The event provided an opportunity for Alumni Board member and Rockwell Collins employee Brian Draeger ’88 to share with guests why he has chosen to stay active at Mount Mercy, inspiring others to do the same.
