Grace Milner


Grace Milner Howard-Donlin ’00 founds an inner-city honors academy that challenges the status quo

Before taking on the role of founding principal at Springfield Honors Academy, Grace Milner Howard-Donlin was teaching and working on similar design projects in other districts. When Springfield leaders and educators approached her about their idea to create an honors academy in the city, she was eager to bring it to fruition. According to their vision, the school would cater to high-performing, low-opportunity students.

“I knew that this would be the most challenging undertaking of my life,” Howard-Donlin says. “But as I saw and thought about student needs in Springfield, I knew that I wanted to dig deep and get creative about how I could meet those tremendous needs.”

Howard-Donlin remembers Regis professors Leona McCaughey-Oreszak, PhD, Carmela Abbruzzese, CSJ, and Judith Costello, CSJ, as playing a special role in shaping her educational philosophy. “My professors knew how to teach us about really reaching kids. ‘Making a difference’ wasn’t just a cliché; it was what we were being trained to do as future educators. I can still remember these professors so vividly, genuinely caring about their craft. I carry it with me always and it guides so much of what I do.”
