The Dr. Hector P. Garcia Memorial Foundation wrapped up its week of events Friday with a luncheon celebrating the 100th birthday of the American GI Forum founder.

Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp was the keynote speaker for a luncheon at the Omni Bayfront Hotel. Garcia's daughter, Cecilia Garcia Akers, who heads the foundation, hopes to raise funds to build a library expansion at the TAMUCC campus to help house 400 linear feet of documents and more than 4,000 photographs that her father donated to the school.
