Pitt Grads Regina and Dennis Stover Continue Support with Victory Heights Gift


PITTSBURGH – For more than 40 years, Regina and Dennis Stover have been Pitt stalwarts, supporting the Panthers no matter the sport or the location.

“It is because of their love for Pitt, their belief in Director of Athletics Heather Lyke and her vision for the long-term trajectory of Pitt Athletics that they have made a six-figure commitment to Victory Heights and women’s basketball.

“Regina and Dennis’ passion for Pitt Athletics is genuine and inspiring,” said Lyke. “They have been extremely generous with their time and financial support in helping Pitt Athletics advance forward in a variety of ways. At almost any athletic event, you can find the Stovers cheering on our Panthers! It is clear they had a wonderful experience as students at Pitt and we are appreciative of their support in providing the same extraordinary experience for our student-athletes today.”

The commitment to the athletic department is one of many financial contributions the couple has made to Pitt. Regina and Dennis also have three endowed scholarships at the University.

Dennis and Regina earned their undergraduate degrees from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and their MBA’s at the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business. Regina and Dennis spent the majority of their careers at BNY Mellon.

They currently reside in Pittsburgh where they are supporters of all Pittsburgh and University of Pittsburgh teams. Regina has also given her time to the University, serving on the Pitt Fan Committee, as President of the Business Alumni Association and as a member of the University’s Alumni Associatio President of the Business Alumni Association and as a member of the University’s Alumni Association. n.

Victory Heights is a transformative capital project featuring a new 3,500-seat competition arena for Volleyball, Wrestling and Gymnastics with designated practice areas for each team, a Sports Performance Complex housing strength and conditioning and sports medicine centers for 84 percent of Pitt’s student-athlete population, and a 300M Indoor Track and Field Complex with an adjoining Marching Band facility. In addition, a third-floor providing coaches’ offices, team meeting rooms, and a student-athlete lounge will be added to the Petersen Sports Complex. Already underway, this project will modernize and maximize the utilization of this important venue in the daily lives of our student-athletes and coaches.
