Regent Graduate, 2009

When Gary Maestas was looking for a way to earn his doctorate in education while maintaining his then-position as assistant superintendent with the Plymouth, Massachusetts school system, he did what any passionate educator would do: his homework. "I really researched it," says Gary. "There was just nothing out there for someone who is a practitioner and can't spend time away."

Then Gary read about Regent's doctoral program and distance learning options. Within months, he and Regent educators had designed a flexible, one-of-a-kind cohort program for doctoral candidates in and around Plymouth. Gary and others plugged in to Regent's powerful network of exceptional students and nationally recognized faculty. "I just can't say enough about the program—it's everything I wanted."

Today, Gary is honored to lead his school district as superintendent. He says he's fulfilling his life goal to help today's students become tomorrow's principled leaders. He recognizes his professors at Regent for equipping him with the necessary leadership skills and knowledge fundamental to his current role as superintendent.
