The Lea Courington Music Scholarship
This bi-annual program benefits local youth who show outsized talent and commitment to the classical music arts. Every other year, Friends of WRR grants a Scholarship Award distributed over a four year college career to enable the recipient to focus on music and bring that talent into organizations in the arts of North Texas.
