Mickey Prokopiak Memorial Fund

Let's meet the match!

A $10,000 dollar-for-dollar match from Jocelyn Swigger '89 in memory of her aunt, Meg Myles has been generously pledged to the Mickey Prokopiak Fund and propels our efforts toward reaching the minimum $35,000 needed to endow the fund in perpetuity.

We need an additional $15,500 to reach our goal!

Within the Academy's theatre program emerged an ambassador who prioritized experiential learning opportunities reflecting the school's motto - scientia ad faciendum - or 'knowledge for the sake of doing.' Each year Mickey Prokopiak -state chapter leader for the International Thespian Society for many years - journeyed to the International Thespian Festival with Academy students. At this festival, students witness theatre beyond the opportunities offered in Albuquerque and join their peers from other schools around the country to participate in workshops. The trip to the festival is a long-standing tradition initiated by Mickey and still lives on today. On-campus productions, educational trips, and Mickey's commitment to enhancing the theatre program all contribute to empowering Academy students to participate in theatre and engage in experiences not found in a traditional classroom setting. 

The Mickey Prokopiak Memorial Fund will help provide experiential learning opportunities for students in the Theater Department and will be used at the discretion of the Performing Arts Department Chair. Local and out-of-state trips and activities, such as the International Thespian Festival, will be supported by this fund. By subsidizing the cost for students who would otherwise be unable to attend, accessibility to these enriched learning opportunities will increase. Generous donations to this fund will share in keeping the memory of Mickey alive, and is a celebration and lasting memorial honoring his life and legacy. 


We are thrilled to share that we have MET THE MATCH and that the Mickey Prokopiak Memorial Fund has reached permanently endowed status! Gifts to the fund are still being accepted and will provide opportunities for our current and future generations of theater students. Thank you!
