Dr. Hector P. Garcia Middle School~ Northside ISD

January 21-25, 2019

Thursday, January 17 was Dr. Hector P. Garcia's 105th birthday celebration in Corpus Christi, Tx. We were invited to the celebration and asked to perform. 50 of our fine arts students showcased their talents in front of hundreds of community members. The event is put on by the Dr. Hector P. Garcia Memorial Foundation which honors the work of the late Dr. Garcia through scholarships and community donations. We were honored to be a part of this celebration. Our students behavior and performance was exemplary!
