COURT HONORS DR. HECTOR P. GARCIA

Resolution Dr. Hector P. Garcia_thumb.JPG

In recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month, Commissioners' Court approved a resolution in honor of Dr. Hector P. Garcia, who dedicated his life to the aid and improvement of the quality of life for Mexican-Americans. Garcia, a physician, war hero, and civil rights advocate, fought to bring attention to the Mexican-American civil rights movement through the American G. I. Forum, empowering Mexican Americans to fight numerous legal and political battles. Garcia, who died in 1996, was remembered for his national prominence as a civil rights leader, but also as a medical doctor with a kind heart who treated many patients for free. In attendance to receive the resolution were his daughter, Cecilia Garcia Akers, and her husband Jim Akers.
