Eric Perlyn

Florida

Eric Perlyn, Pine Crest School, Fort Lauderdale, was recognized for Stepp’n Up, a non-profit organization he created five years ago to provide new shoes to needy children in Florida. Working with shoe manufacturers and local shoe stores, Eric has helped provide new shoes to over 5,000 children over the last five years -- not just covering their feet, but also playing a significant role in how the children feel about themselves.
