Category Archives: Mercantini Family Trust Scholarship

A mentee is defined as an experienced and trusted advisor. We believe
that education is the foundation of every student’s future. This belief
has caused us to mentor many students in Fairfax County throughout
the years. We were very excited to hear that Mountain View had its
own in house mentoring program. We learned that many members of
the Mountain View staff, in addition to their regular responsibilities,
have chosen to mentor students. As a result many students have been
able to reach their goal of graduating from high school.
Ellen Fay, Counselor at Mountain View high school is a personal friend
of our family. Ms. Fay has worked at Mountain View as a counselor
and a mentor for the past 12 years. We are funding this scholarship in
her honor.

Your actions will have immediate affect. Your gift will help students currently attending Mountain View High School who are soon to be graduating this February or June.

100% of donations received go directly to students.

100% of your donations are tax-deductible. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
