RJ Mercado was a three year old little boy. He loved Thomas the Train. He loved his family and was adored in turn. At The Children’s Corner, he was a Purple Penguin who could be heard singing and clapping along to his favorite song, “The Bunny Song.” His voice carried through the halls as he hopped along.  At the tender age of three, he was taken away to hop and play with the angels.

In celebration of his life, The Children’s Corner established the RJ Mercado Scholarship Fund. The scholarship fund will help former Children’s Corner students, starting with the class of 2018 (our first graduating class), as they are leaving high school to further their education.

Come visit RJ’s Memorial Garden located in our playground!
