Misericordia University recently dedicated the John and Cynthia Mulloy Dish Room in the John and Mary Metz Dining Hall in recognition of the couple’s generosity and more than 68 years of combined service to students, faculty and staff.

Flanked by family, friends and members of the campus community, John and Cynthia Mulloy of Dallas Borough, Pa., watched as the University dedicated the Mulloy Dish Room during a formal ceremony on Feb. 18. A special plaque was hung in the dining room in their honor. Afterward, a special luncheon was held in the couple’s honor and they cut a special cake that was shared with members of the campus community.

The Mulloys are employees of Metz Culinary Management, which oversees dining services for the University. Mr. Mulloy has been working at Misericordia since 1966, while his wife, Cynthia, has been employed on the Back Mountain campus for 21 years. “Our Wyoming Valley is called the valley with a heart,’’ President Michael A. MacDowell said during the dedication ceremony. “Our University is known for its Mercy values of Hospitality and Service. John and Cindy personify this region and this value. In recognition of this fact, Misericordia’s Trustees, students, faculty and staff are proud to install this plaque and dedicate this room in your name.’’
