    Luis D. Porras was a Spanish teacher and varsity boy’s soccer coach at El Cerrito High School from 2007 to 2014. He passed away from Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2015.

As a language teacher and native Spanish speaker, Mr. Porras was passionate in sharing his knowledge of the Spanish language and culture with his students. As a soccer coach, he encouraged camaraderie and sportsmanship. In both capacities, what Mr. Porras appreciated most was hard work and an eagerness to learn and improve.

    This $1,000 scholarship is provided by his family to honor Mr. Porras' commitment to El Cerrito High School and its students.
