The $1,000 fiesta queen scholarship pageant is judged on six categories: personal interview, introduction, talent, evening gown, and an impromptu final question.  Heidy shared her reason for competing, "I joined the pageant very last minute. They needed more women to join, so my friend (Adriana the previous queen), reached out to me the week of and asked if I would be interested. I thought it would be fun to do something outside of my comfort zone and the scholarship would be amazing." Miss Aguilar reigned supreme and will compete at Miss Kansas, a Miss America state competition, next summer!

Heidy was born and raised in Garden City, KS, and is a sophomore majoring in music at GCCC.  She is on the track team, first violin in the string quartet, and co-captain of the marching band's color guard. She stays quite busy on campus and shared that she greatly enjoys her time at GCCC, "My favorite thing about the college is the environment. My coaches, athletic trainers, and teachers are so supportive and encouraging. I have always felt that I could count on them for anything. I trust them fully and have grown very fond of them. I could not do all that I do without their help and support."

After graduating from GCCC, Heidy plans on pursuing a degree in Music Therapy and passing the Music Therapy Board Exam.  Her dream is to work at a children's hospital.
