Delray Beach resident Eric Torres, 27, has been so healthy that he's never had a cavity, never needed one stitch.

The Luis E. Torres Scholarship Award was created to honor the memory of an amazing son, wonderful brother and dedicated teacher.
Our mission is simple yet profound; to recognize students who have overcome or are battling a medical obstacle to achieve academic excellence in their pursuit of higher education.
