From helping out in Traylor Hall with various tasks to giving tours during their free rotations and escorting prospective students to class, Mercersburg’s Blue Key Ambassadors are important liaisons between our Admission Office and prospective families. Get to know some of our student ambassadors by reading about them below. We look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
“The Blue Key Ambassador program is about introducing prospective students and families to Mercersburg - showing them who we are and the special community we have.” - Morgan Matsuda ’15

What is your favorite subject? My favorite class is AP Biology. This class has pushed me academically more than ever. I appreciate the challenge that comes with learning about things I enjoy.
What activities do you participate in? Cross Country, Lacrosse, Wrestling, Blue Key and violin
Who is your favorite teacher and why? My favorite teacher is Mrs. Walker. She is my anatomy teacher. She always brings so much energy into the classroom. This makes it fun and also more engaging to learn the things she is teaching.
Why do you enjoy giving tours? I enjoy giving tours because I love talking about Mercersburg. I show people how the Mercersburg community is far different than anything else. Everyone knows everyone and we all get along.
Describe your most memorable Mercersburg moment. My most memorable Mercersburg moment when we beat St. James in football this year. Almost the whole entire school came to support our football team. I have never seen anything like the school spirit we showed that day.
What is your favorite Mercersburg tradition? My favorite Mercersburg tradition is Irving-Marshall week. During this week, the students are divided into two societies and participate in a series of contests. This week is filled with friendly competition and rivalries that date over a hundred years.
