Every year, MMA’s senior Economics class develops and runs a top -notch corporation within the walls of Merion Mercy Academy. Like any business, the company is split into several divisions. The students divided into Human Resources, Public Relations, Production, Finance, and Market Research departments, ensuring a true to life business enterprise. At the beginning of the semester, students had a board meeting in which to discuss potential business options and to the most cost effective, amenable vendors. The class ultimately decided on selling pairs of socks with a stylish and sporty MMA logo. The company, Sock it to Merion set a goal of 400 pairs of socks, which they not only met, but exceeded. Staying true to Mercy roots, profits were donated to the Canuso Foundation, one of several suggested charities.
