Michie Stadium Preservation Project Support Spotlight: Robert Healy
A consistent supporter of West Point and a member of the West Point Association of Graduates (WPAOG) Douglas MacArthur Lifetime Giving Society, Robert Healy was among the first to make a significant commitment to the Michie Stadium Preservation Project.
Giving back to West Point, he said, “means a great deal to me personally as I feel a sense of obligation to help the Academy as much as possible as West Point helped me in so many ways in life. So, to be able to help build upon the tremendous sports tradition at West Point really gives me a great deal of joy.”
Built in 1924, Michie Stadium has become a West Point icon and serves as the gateway to the Academy for many Americans. The transformational Michie Stadium Preservation Project will help to preserve and protect Michie Stadium’s history, tradition, and “once-in-a-lifetime experience” for generations to come. The project will support reconstruction of the East Stands and introduce all-new premium suite, loge, ledge, and club-level seating areas. Army West Point Football already provides an unparalleled experience, and the proposed upgrades will further enhance the uniqueness of experiencing a game at Michie Stadium.
Healy’s strong personal connection to Army Football inspired him to support this project. He was a quarterback for the team as a cadet and was the MVP of the 1985 Peach Bowl, leading the team to their second Bowl victory in history. Read more.
