In memory of her mother, Susan Patricelli Regan has established a nonprofit Fine Arts Scholarship Charity which is awarded to a graduating High School senior and/or post-secondary student who is pursuing a college major in the Fine Arts.
The Masters School in Simsbury and CREC Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts Half-Day Program have now become an integral part of the Foundation's focused objectives to support diversified educational opportunities for the youth of our community. Granby Memorial High School was unable to meet the parameter requirements of the Scholarship this year due to lack of participants but is now seeking to expand to a district competition that may include East Granby and Simsbury High Schools for 2022.
Jean Pondugula of the Masters School, winner of the 2021 Foundation Award
CREC Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts Program student, Dimitri Taylor Williams, winner of the 2021 Sylvia Davis Fine Arts Scholarship. Ms. Williams will be attending the School of Arts Institute of Chicago in the fall of 2021.

In 2018, a scholarship was awarded to Meaghan Leonardi, a graduating senior at Granby Memorial High School who is attending University of Vermont.
