Reginald completed three and a half years of his Bachelor’s program at UMass-Amherst before financial issues forced him to leave school. He returned to Boston and gained employment with the Boston YMCA, working in the successful development of training programs, primarily for high school aged youth. In anticipation of completing his degree program at UMass, he has recently transferred to Hartford to develop similar programs there. His plan is to continue to work full time and complete his remaining semester of schooling in a weekend program. His plan after graduating is to continue to develop educational programs as well as mentoring and counseling programs with the YMCA.
