House of Representatives
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: April 19, 2021 10:29 AM
From: Representative Nick Pisciottano
To: All House members
Subject: Regis L. Stephenson Memorial Highway
In the near future, I will be introducing legislation to re-name the portion of State Route 2044, also known as Brierly Lane, between Homestead-Duquesne Road and Interboro Avenue in West Mifflin Borough, Allegheny County, as the Regis L. Stephenson Memorial Highway.

On January 8, 1951, Regis L. Stephenson was born in Duquesne, Allegheny County. He was a graduate of Duquesne High School, received his bachelor’s degree in special education from California University of Pennsylvania, and received his master’s in education from Duquesne University. Regis L. Stephenson taught special education in the Pittsburgh Public Schools system for 32 years until he retired. 

He served for 20 years on the West Mifflin Borough Council, and was serving as council president at the time of his passing. In 1986, he began a six-year tenure on the West Mifflin School Board. Additionally, he started the Pittsburgh area’s first troop for Boy Scouts with disabilities, and he served as a West Penn basketball official for 26 years. In 2012, Regis L. Stephenson passed away at the age of 61. 

Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation honoring a man who dedicated his life to our Pittsburgh community.
