Michie Stadium Preservation Project Spotlight: Class of 1977
In honor of the United States Military Academy Class of 1977, a $10.5 million gift has been anonymously awarded to the Michie Stadium Preservation Project, bolstering the efforts of the most ambitious gift-funded construction project in the history of the Academy.
The project, which was officially launched last month, has already made significant progress towards its targeted $95 million thanks to the efforts of the West Point Association of Graduates (WPAOG), the Army West Point Athletics Association (AWPAA) and the support of the greater West Point community.
This historic effort will seek to reconstruct the East Stands of Michie Stadium, which provides fans one of the most unique and storied experiences in college football. Built in 1924, Michie Stadium is an icon of West Point and provides opportunity for Americans to engage with, learn about an immerse themselves in the culture of the Academy.
“We are so thankful for the outpouring of support that we have received in our efforts to complete the Michie Stadium Preservation Project,” Director of Athletics Mike Buddie said. “This is one of many sizeable gifts that we have received and we are thrilled by the momentum that this project has. These efforts will undoubtedly benefit the cadet-athletes, the Corps and fans.” Read more.
