Grad Standout: La Habra high football star bound for Northern Arizona University

Jonathan Garcia likes to hit people on the football field just as much as he enjoys hitting the books.

 The La Habra High School senior played four years of varsity football and says playing under the Friday night lights is one the high school memories he will cherish most.

“I can just remember the lights and the sounds and everything about it.  And also, making it to CIF but sadly, losing in the finals.”

He says he believes it’s important to acknowledge the people who helped him reach this important milestone.

"I just want to take some time to and say thank you to everybody, to my friends, to my family, and everybody who supported me.  I also want to give a shout out to all the 2020 grads, especially those at La Habra High School.  I know it’s been a tough time but we made it!"

Garcia plans to further his education with a major in Biology and will attend Northern Arizona University in the fall.
