Joshua Akers Set-Build Workshop and Endowment Fund
Active Dates: 3/11/2019 - 12/31/2023

Joshua Russell Akers, son of the Founder of Plano Children’s Theatre Sara Akers and beloved husband of Victoria Mizell Akers, suddenly passed on March 8, 2019. Joshua was a 2006 graduate of Plano Senior High and the Wild Cat Football team. Joshua proudly served with distinction as a Marine and was pursuing a degree in Petroleum Engineering at UNT. Joshua grew up in the Plano Children's Theatre and as an actor and volunteer.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests the NTPA family make donations to support the dedication of the “Joshua Akers Set-Build Workshop” at the Willow Bend Center of the Arts as a memorial to his love of the arts and woodworking. Proceeds will establish the Joshua Akers Scholarship Endowment Fund to create performing and tech theatre opportunities for underprivileged children/teens at NTPA. (Significant supporters will be recognized in a plaque within the set-build shop.)
