Lloyd Scher ‘76: The Visionary
Lloyd Scher ‘76 attended UNC following two years in the Air Force. Carolina was the only university to which he ever applied.
Scher cherishes his time in Chapel Hill as a student for the friendships he made and the opportunities it led for him to succeed business and civic life.
It is out of a profound love and gratitude for the University and these many life long friendships that Scher commissioned “UNC’s National Championships” by internationally renowned 3-D pop artist, Charles Fazzino.
Scher met Fazzino in New York at one of his 3-D shows in 2013. After viewing pieces he did for Notre Dame and Florida, he began pitching Fazzino to do a UNC piece. But the right inspiration did not arrive until a few years later on April 3, 2017 when the Men’s Basketball won its seventh National Championship.
Inspired by this victory, Scher worked with Sr. Associate Athletic Director, Steve Kirshner and cataloged all 113 of Tar Heels National Championship titles since 1924. With this info in hand, Scher finally made a successful pitch to Fazzino to create “UNC’s National Championships,” a beautiful UNC-themed 3D pop art piece to commemorate the of UNC Athletics national titles.
To Scher this project has been a labor of love to honor our great University and our athletes. Says Scher, “I am proud of its 3-D design and its look and every Carolina Fan will want to own one but only 100 will be produced.”
Scher’s continued involvement with the University runs deep. He is a Lifetime Member of the UNC General Alumni Association.
