She said, “I value the Pioneer School District and that has been my main focus and motivation. I am willing to serve the community and represent all citizens of our district, as I lived here my whole life and have raised my children here. Student growth, academic improvement and opportunities for our students have always been very important to me. I would like to continue to commit my time to serve on the board as an effective member.”
Community involvement is very important to Angela. She also supports the American Diabetes Association, is a board member for Arcade Area Youth Soccer and board member on the Wyoming County Business Education Council.

Her Bachelor of Science degree is in Music Education (K-12), and her Master of Science degree is in Educational Technology.

Ms. Warner Regan has a vested interest in her community and its children. She believes their education is the groundwork/basis for a positive future of our community, both local and greater.
“My experience in education and in finance would benefit our Pioneer Central School community,” she said.
