Amaya Sommer

  Amaya Sommer has been working hard since the Spring of 2017 when she announced that she would be running for Fiesta Queen for the annual St. Francis of Assisi Fiesta Patrias & Car Show. 

  Amaya is the daughter of Bobby and Cathy Sommer.  She is a sixth grader at Heartland Ranch Elementary School in Coolidge.  She enjoys playing the Euphonium (similar to a tuba but larger) in her school band and she also plays softball for the Superior Little League.  She would like to earn a scholarship to play the Euphonium in college.  She has two sisters Adrienne Hernandez, Brittney Denogean and a brother Raiden Sommer.  She has a pet dog named Kuma.

  Throughout the year Amaya along with her family and friends hosted a variety of fundraisers including Italian Soda Sales, Family Movie Nights, Pastry Events and, of course, her signature fundraiser – a Taco Sale which featured the recipe and techniques of her late Aunt Helen from the Triple XXX restaurant.  This year, Amaya did not have any other candidates running against her so she set a goal of raising $10,000 to help her church.  She has not only met that goal but she has exceeded it. 

  “I wanted to run for queen to raise money for my church,” she explained. 

  She will be crowned the Queen of the 2017 Fiesta’s Patrias on Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017.  Her escort will be Nathan Taylor who is a seventh grader at the Superior Junior-Senior High School.
