MAJ Garcia 2021 “LATINA Style” Distinguished Military Service Award
September 15 to October 15 is National Hispanic Heritage Month. We are proud to announce that MAJ Lidilia M.A. Garcia was selected as a 2021 LATINA Style Distinguished Military Service Award recipient and recognized today during the Virtual National Latina Symposium. The LATINA Style Distinguished Military Service Awards recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of women in the military and the Department of Defense civilian workforce who have enhanced the role of Latinas in their organization and the Department of Defense.
“It is an honor to play a role in developing our nation's future leaders. Instructing at West Point means the circle is enlarging and there are more opportunities for Latinas to showcase their intellectual capacity and talent. We bring unique perspectives that foster diversity, inclusion, and multicultural competencies to West Point. My presence lets other Latinas know that if I am here, they can also be here.” MAJ Garcia teaches General Psychology for Leaders and Sociology of the Family in the Behavioral Sciences and Leadership department. Congratulations!
