Liberty North High School Senior Anthony Garcia was recently featured on the Fox 4 Reaching 4 Excellence segment. Below is an excerpt from the story, along with a link that provides the video feature.
Anthony Garcia has always dreamed of being a trauma physician for the military, and he's getting closer to making that dream a reality.
The Liberty North senior is the first in his family to go to college. Next fall he's headed to John Hopkins University to study medicine.
"Right now I really want to go into the military side of trauma medicine," Anthony said. "The ability to serve the men who serve us -- it's always been a dream of mine."
The grandson of a Vietnam veteran, Anthony said there's nothing in this world he'd rather do.
"Love the thought of serving my country," the 17-year-old said.
We caught up with Anthony inside his science class where he was working on a research project focused on cancer treatments.
