Episcopal School statement

Statement from Board of Trustees chairman Rob Clements and The Very Rev. Kate Moorehead, dean of St. John's Cathedral

It is with great sadness that we mourn the death of Dale Regan, our beloved Head of School. Dale died in an unspeakable tragedy today. We will spend the rest of the week counseling and comforting our student body and faculty and staff. Please pray for Dale's family and for the Episcopal Community.

Dale has devoted her entire life to this School as a teacher and administrator. She is known for her gentle, wise, leadership.

Dale was a life-time educator, beginning her career in education in 1970. Having taught for more than 20 years, many of which were at Episcopal, and served in numerous high-level administrative positions at Episcopal since 1987, Dale was at heart a teacher.

Without Dale's determination and passion for students and teaching, where Parks and Lastinger Halls now stand would just be empty space. Instead, the future of Episcopal and excellence in teaching and learning stands supported by brick and white columns, but more importantly, it houses new ways of learning, technology for today's student, and an environment that challenges teachers to be their best. Dale received an EVE Award in 2011 for her vision in building Parks and Lastinger Halls.

We are all blessed to have known Dale and will miss her dearly.
