This scholarship is offered in memory of Lt. Luis Lopez who died after a three year battle with a lung disease he contracted as a first responder at the World Trade Center after 9/11.

Lt. Lopez was born in the Bronx, but was raised by his aunt and uncle in Yauco, Puerto Rico after his mother's death. In Yauco, he worked picking coffee beans, and decided to return to New York in search of better opportunities. After a string of menial jobs, he passed the New York City Police Officer Exam and worked as a Police Officer for 27 years, starting as a transit police officer, to Sergeant and later Lieutenant. He loved people and he loved motivating young people to want better for themselves. Lt. Lopez is survived by his wife, Jacqueline Lopez, who worked in the Yonkers Public Schools for 12 years, and his son Anthony, who is graduating from college this year.
