What is the Lorraine's Leaders program at Regis College?

Lorraine Tegan's beloved alma mater of Regis College has long been a beneficiary of her family’s generosity and support. To continue to advance Lorraine’s passion for education, and her long-term efforts to support students pursuing college education, Regis has created the Lorraine DeStefano Tegan ‘63 Leaders (Lorraine’s Leaders) program, to recognize and support rising high school juniors and seniors from New Heights Charter School of Brockton and Cardinal Spellman High School who seek to pursue a college degree as a first generation student with a particular interest in health care or the sciences.
