2014 Mini Miss Colusa County, Kaylie Gwinnup takes a looks back

Mini Miss Colusa County

Kaylie Gwinnup was crowned the 2014 Mini Miss Colusa County at the 75th Annual Colusa County Fair. Gwinnup had a busy year attending local and area events representing Colusa County.

“I have had a lot of fun,” said Gwinnup, “this last year has helped build my confidence and helped with my public speaking.”

Gwinnup commented that she made several new friends and got to explore new places.

“I attended the Butte County Fair and had a great time with Miss Colusa County,” said Gwinnup.

During the Colusa County Farm Show, Gwinnup learned a lot about farming and met an individual that inspired her to make goals.

“He told a story about his life and setting goals,” said Gwinnup, “He knew wat he wanted to do in life and he did it – he inspired me.”

Gwinnup also attended the Arbuckle and Maxwell Car Show’s where she handed out awards.

“They were both great events,” said Gwinnup.

Although Gwinnup is planning to run for Miss Colusa County shortly, she said that she will miss wearing the Mini Miss Colusa County Crown and Sash.

“I will also miss getting to hangout with Miss Colusa County,” said Gwinnup, “I will also miss getting my photo taken – I love having my photo taken.”

Gwinnup also plans to one day run for Miss California and possibly Miss America.

Now a Junior High student at Maxwell High School, Gwinnup has made a long-term goal to become a lawyer of sorts as she loves debating.

Gwinnup’s advice to the incoming Mini Miss Colusa County is to enjoy the fair and to be prepared to have lots of photos taken.

“People want to take photos with you, and sometimes you don’t know you are having a photo taken,” said Gwinnup, “always have an escort with you and be aware.”

“It’s a one year opportunity, so enjoy it!” Gwinnup added.

Gwinnup would like to thank Miss Colusa County, Kendra Hester for having her back.

“Without Kendra, my crown would be on backwards, and my sash would be on the wrong shoulder,” said Gwinnup, “she was a wonderful role model.”

Additionally, Gwinnup wants to thank her Grandmother for always being there and supporting her, and giving her rides to events.

“My Mom was a tremendous support and I couldn’t have done it without her,” said Gwinnup, “she provided me with everything I needed and provided the support and encouragement that I needed. It was great to know she was on the sidelines, always encouraging me.”<
