2016 Inaugural Friends of WRR Scholarships

Your membership is at work with the first Friends of WRR scholarships given to three students heading to college this fall to study music:

Megan Darlington is a bassoonist who graduated from Booker T. Washington School for the Performing and Visual Arts and will attend the University of Texas in Austin.

Yesenia Gonzalez is a violinist who graduated from North Mesquite High School and will attend the University of Texas at Arlington.

Olivia Mancini is a voice performer who graduated from Colleyville Heritage High School and will attend Stephen F. Austin University.

Each student received a $5,000 scholarship payable over four years, as long as each maintains the scholarship requirements. We congratulate them on their achievements and wish them all the best with their music studies.

A portion of the funding of the three scholarships was donated specifically for that purpose by a private foundation and individual donors. If you are interested in donating to future scholarships, please contact Lea Courington, President of Friends oF WRR Board of Directors at lcourington@dykema.com.
