Coronado crowned 2014-2015 Miss Grandview

GRANDVIEW – It was a night of super ladies with super talent, gracing the stage at Grandview Middle School as they competed for the 2014-15 Miss Grandview title this past Saturday. It was Cecilia Coronado who earned the crown after wowing the judges during the fitness, interview and poise awards. She shares the interview and poise awards with newly crowned Miss Grandview co-princess Taylor Colson, who also won the Immanuel Lutheran Church community service and talent awards. The other co-princess selected Saturday is Marissa Garza, who was presented the award for scholastic achievement. There were nine young ladies competing for the title. For 20 percent of the judges points, Elizabeth Arredondo performed a hip-hop dance routine to the song “Turn Up The Music,” Adilene Pineda painted a butterfly to a Martina McBride song, Morgan Mendoza performed a dance mix, Colson provided a vocal and acoustic guitar performance of the song “Roar” by Katy Perry, Garza played “Walk the Line” on the guitar and danced, Lecie Owens performed a vocal of “Broken Wing” by Martina McBride, Angelica Rodriguez performed a strobe-light dance, a monologue was delivered by Allie Harrington and Coronado performed a lyrical dance routine to “Better in Time.” Each of the young ladies donned a formal gown for the poise segment of the Miss Grandview Program, and had to answer an impromptu question. Coronado said she would like to become famous for her dancing since it is her passion. Colson was asked what super hero name she would choose for herself. “Wonder Woman…I believe I have the power to do anything I desire.” Garza’s question was focused on improving the community. She told those gathered for the program she would like to get more high school students involved in the community. “They aren’t very involved in the community,” she said. Following the poise segment, the outgoing 2013-14 Miss Grandview court bid a farewell to its reign. Queen Analilia Granados, and co-princesses Joceylyn Baca and Wendy Magana all said the year has been filled with memories. Quoting Dr. Seuss, Granados said, “Don’t cry because it’s over…but, smile because it happened.” She said she will never forget the many moments shared with her princesses, their families, the Miss Grandview Program committee and the community members. “This year was an epic year,” said Granados. At the conclusion of the pageant, Rodriguez was named the winner of the “Be Your Best Self” and “Spirit of Miss Grandview” awards; and Kory Kollmar, also the 2014-15 Mr. Grandview, was named “Friend of Miss Grandview.”
