Scholarship Fund Donations
In celebration of his life, The Children’s Corner has established the RJ Mercado Scholarship Fund which will help former Children’s Corner students, starting with the class of 2018 (the school's first graduating class), as they are leaving high school to further their education. Anyone interested making a donation to the fund may do so online here.
At Tuesday's gathering, there will also be a special dedication for the addition of an Angel to RJ’s Garden, a special memorial in the school's playground.
