Regis College Remembers Life of Milton Student
Milton High graduate and Regis College junior, Darner Alteon, died at age 20.
Alteon, 20, was returning from a poetry reading Thursday night, when his 1992 Lexus LS-400 crashed on Truman Parkway on Milton.
Regis suspended classes for an hour at noon on Friday, September 21, for students to meet with campus ministers and counselors. A candlelight vigil in remembrance of the college junior was held on campus Friday night.
According to a release from the college, Alteon was “a well known and well respected student on campus.”
An unnamed nurse practitioner student penned a blog post on Alteon’s passing, Friday.
While the “Regis College BSN/MSN Nurse Practitioner Student: A Year in the Life,” author did not know Alteon, he/she offered condolence in a blog called “Perspective.”
Below is a short excerpt from the post, for the entire blog, click here.
In life it is easy to believe that things are really 'that bad'. And sometimes, all it takes is a dose of reality to remember what life is really all about. It is about living. About learning. About a friend, classmate, a son, a cousin. A young man full of promise that doesn't have a tomorrow anymore. That doesn't have a chance to be stressed, or to lose his keys or to have a cold.
…And today, more than ever, let us take a minute to gain a little perspective. Thank you
