A Message Of Prayers & Condolence

September 21, 2012

Regis College President Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN, sadly informed the campus community on Friday, September 21, that Darner Alteon, Class of 2014, had died in a car accident on Thursday night. Darner had left campus after joining fellow students and friends at a poetry reading and was on his way home when the accident occurred. No one else was involved.

In her message to the campus, President Hays spoke for all faculty and staff in reminding students that "We believe in you..., and we believe that our Good Shepherd God will comfort you and us all in this sadness and is even now leading Darner into his embrace."

Both Dean of Students Kara Kolomitz and President Hays have spoken with Darner's family to convey the sadness and the condolences of the College.

At noon on Friday, classes were suspended for an hour and the Regis College Community gathered with College campus ministers Reverend Paul Kilroy and Sister Betsy Conway, CSJ, and class advisor Sandra Dorsainville to remember Darner, to grieve, and to support one another in this tragic loss. Darner was a well known and well respected student on campus. On Friday evening at 7:30 p.m. students held a candlelight vigil to honor him in the Tower Garden. Grief counselors have been available Friday and Saturday. For information on times and places, please contact Student Affairs and Resident Directors.
