Regina Higdon was an ordinary person with the extraordinary gift of being able to show those around her what it meant to love and to be loved. For many years, she ran a child care center in her home where she gave special care to the children of numerous families, just as if they were her own. Regina was a devout Catholic who believed strongly in the value of a Catholic education and made many sacrifices to ensure her children received that type of education. When she died in 2003, friends and family set up this Fund to help graduates of Christ the King School attend either Father Ryan High School or St. Cecilia Academy in Regina’s name.
