Stephen Sapuppo (October 17, 1959 - February 19, 1993)

Stephen Sapuppo was an actor who appeared on Another World as well as in the film Hanging Heart. The Stephen Sapuppo Prize, established in 1993 by Helen and Michele Sapuppo and family in loving memory of their son and brother Stephen, A'81, is awarded to a junior who has demonstrated outstanding academic achievement in drama, with preference for a member of Torn Ticket Two.

Stephen John Sapuppo was born in 1959 in Lawrence, attended schools in Lawrence and Andover, and graduated from Governor Dummer Academy in Georgetown, Massachusetts in 1977.

Very active in drama at all schools, he was presented the Best Thespian Award from Governor Dummer Academy "for meritorious work in the field of dramatics, for inspiring participation, providing leadership, and developing theatrical knowledge and abilities."

His acting abilities were continued at Tufts University and as a president of Torn Ticket. After graduating in 1981 with a B.A. cum laude, his acting interests took him to New York and later to Los Angeles in pursuit of his dreams until his untimely death in 1993. He was kind and considerate of friends and family; talented, entertaining, and a wonderful son.

His parents Mike and Helen, his brothers Nunzi, Michael, and Christopher and sisters Lisamarie and Saramichelle have established the scholarship in Stephen's name to perpetuate his love of drama. They look for qualities and talents similar to Stephen's in Tufts students to help provide them an opportunity to pursue that dream in the entertainment world.
