Let It Shine Gala

The Let It Shine Regis Gala on October 23, 2019, celebrated Women in STEM during Massachusetts STEM Week. Let It Shine, now in its fourth year, has raised millions of dollars for student scholarships. Regis honored world-renowned Massachusetts Eye and Ear researcher Patricia A. D’Amore ’73, PhD, MBA, with the university’s Shining Example Award. D’Amore, the director of the Schepens Eye Research Institute, was honored for her groundbreaking work that helps treat various ocular vascular diseases that affect millions of people worldwide every year.

“Pat has made significant contributions to the field of STEM including serving as a mentor to countless colleagues,” said Regis President Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN. “We are so proud that she got her start in the science labs at Regis.”

Announcing: Marshall M. Sloane School of Business and Communication

President Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN, made a surprise announcement at the Gala, unveiling the Marshall M. Sloane School of Business and Communication at Regis. The school is named in memory of Century Bank founder, the late Marshall M. Sloane, who was a longtime supporter of Regis and also the recipient of the Shining Example Award and an honorary Regis degree. Sloane’s children, Barry and Linda (pictured above left with their father), also of Century Bank, were at the Gala to accept the honor.

“Linda and I are so humbled by the honor of naming the School of Business and Communication in honor of our Dad. He was such a booster of the mission and success of Regis, to have a school named for him would have brought tears to his eyes. He would be justifiably proud,” said Barry Sloane. “Higher education meant so much to him, and the idea that thousands of graduates will bear his name on their diplomas is a fitting legacy to his life of accomplishments, and his credo that ‘Character Counts.’”
