atherine Thompson, the associate director of admission and financial aid, is leaving Mercersburg next year and relocating to Michigan to become the director of admission at a Grosse Pointe, Academy, a day school. “I wanted to take on more responsibilities and had always hoped to one day become a Director of Admission,” said Thompson.

Thompson reflected that her experiences as an adviser and with Fowle residents have been her fondest and that her baking and singing memories with the girls are unforgettable. Furthermore, working in the admission office, she said, has granted her a lot of opportunities to get to know the students.

Looking ahead to her career at Grosse Pointe, she is very excited with younger children. “I’m also excited to have more time to pursue my outside-of-work passion: cooking!” Thompson said. Leaving Mercersburg is going to be hard for her, but there couldn’t be a better time than this, either. “Every student I have ever advised here at Mercersburg has either already graduated or will be graduating later this month. It felt right to be “graduating” along with them.” Thompson stated.
