This scholarship honors Rosemary Segovia Torres.  It was established by her parents, Teressa Segovia Torres and Valentin V. Torres, Jr., in memory of their daughter, their only child, who died at 16 1/2 years of age on December 18th, 2002.

Rosemary was a junior at Sinai Apostolic Academy and played on their championship volleyball team.  She was a unique and incredible young lady who had an unselfish spirit and a willingness to lend a helping hand to those in need.  Furthermore, Rosemary was very sensitive to individuals with disabilities.

Her desire was to attend the University of Houston to begin her studies towards becoming a music therapist.  She wanted to help individuals with speech and language impairments through music.  Rosemary sang beautifully and played the piano as well. She became very excited when she discovered that she could use her music talent to help others increase their speaking abilities.
