Thanks to your support, the Falconer Foundation awarded their first significant scholarship - in the amount of $10,000 - in May of 2022 to a very deserving young lady!
Meet Lyric Contarino, a recent graduate from North Iredell High School, who is currently attending Brevard College. Lyric is a spunky, outgoing, beautiful human being with a longtime passion for the arts. While at North Iredell High, she was involved in the theatre, the choir, on the Colorguard team, and on the yearbook staff. She was able to attend Brevard this fall to pursue her musical theatre degree on almost a full ride thanks to a performing arts scholarship as well as the endowment from Falconer Foundation.
“I’ve been participating in choir, Colorguard, and musical theatre for a very long time. After performing for people for the first time, I knew it was for me”, said Lyric. “Performing arts took the shy young girl I once was and turned me into a confident young woman.”
