JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Episcopal Head of School Dale Regan was shot and killed a year ago by a teacher who had been fired earlier that day.
Since Regan's death, the Dale D. Regan Memorial Fund was established in memory of Regan to honor the lifetime of service she gave to Episcopal as a teacher, administrator and Head of School. In just a year, the fund has grown to over $300,000.
In a ceremony Wednesday for the Episcopal community and all those who have given to the Dale D. Regan Memorial Fund, the Dale D. Regan Plaza at the Great Oak will be dedicated at 10 a.m.

The Plaza is 12,000 square feet of wood decking, which will protect and preserve the root system of the Great Oak, which is hundreds of years old, in addition to providing a safe place under the spreading branches of the tree for quiet reflection or study. The Great Oak was important to Dale Regan and was a special gathering place for her and her sons.
Regan served the Episcopal community for 34 years.
