The Regetta Brigante Allen and Stanley “Fishy” Allen Scholarship Fund was established by their children, Chris Allen, Craig Allen and Ann Allen Byers, in memory of their parents. Regetta and Fishy were both graduates of Steubenville Catholic Central.
Regetta graduated from CCHS in 1952, as a member of the second class to graduate from the then “new” school located on West View Avenue. She was a majorette in the CCHS Marching Band throughout her high school years, which likely explains why she sang the CCHS fight song and alma mater to her children and taught them the lyrics.
Fishy graduated from CCHS in 1945. Upon his graduation, he enlisted in the United States Army. After completing his basic training, he went on to serve the United States of America in Japan working in communications and intelligence. The children fondly remember their father taking to them to CCHS football games at Harding Stadium when they were small enough to walk in under the turnstiles.
All of their children also attended and graduated from CCHS. The Allen’s founded this scholarship in memory of their parents.
