TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WBRC) - Jason Garcia stood alongside family, friends and members from the community Wednesday evening to surprise his daughter, Elli Garcia, ahead of her high school graduation.

Garcia is a member of the Army National Guard and his daughter Elli had no idea he was waiting to surprise her after her church youth group.

Elli is a senior at Hillcrest High School in Tuscaloosa County. She is an academic All-Star, a cheerleader and class secretary. She will be attending Mississippi State University in the fall.

Elli’s brother, 2LT Alex Garcia, was not able to be here tonight but he is an infantry officer at Ft. Benning!
