Sandy Aguilar - SWHS

Sandy Aguilar
Spring Woods High School
College/School: Texas A&M University
Career Goal: Accounting


Sandy earned a letter as a member of the Spring Woods High Drill Team. A member of the Color Guard and Latin American Club, she was Most Improved Student in her Algebra I class. As part of Tigers for Troops, she made Valentine Cards for Iraq soldiers. She was also involved in Junior Achievement, where she helped teach and mentor elementary students at a neighboring campus.
Sandy has an inspiring story. Her father was deported in 2011, and in the fall of that year, her mother passed away from cancer. Sandy immediately faced what would be nearly overwhelming challenges for others. Sandy faced them head on.

“I have moved several times, and lived with various extended family members. I have taken on the responsibility of maintaining a home life for my younger brother and myself. As a result, I had to drop out of school activities in order to take care of the daily household duties. Through all of this, I have remained focused on learning and maintained my class rank (Top 7 Percent of her 2013 Class). With graduation, Sandy will achieve her dream since third grade, which is to become a Texas Aggie and graduate from Texas A&M University. She starts there this fall and will pursue a degree in accounting.
