Introducing the Hector F. Garcia Scholarship
SERTOMA Club of Watauga and the City of Watauga are proud to introduce the Hector F. Garcia Scholarship Fund. Special annual fund-raising efforts by the members of SERTOMA and City of Watauga generate the scholarship’s funds, which are then awarded each spring to one (1) student from Birdville Independent School District (BISD) and one (1) student from Keller Independent School District (KISD).
