Alexandria Werthman

Reina de la Feria de las Flores

As a counterpart to the Rey Feo, the Reina Feria de las Flores was created to raise funds for the Rey Feo Scholarship but represent LULAC Council No. 2 as official Fiesta Royalty. In 1997, the Reina Feria was given her own scholarship, the Parent/ Child fund. The Parent/ Child Scholarship was created in partnership with the Chancellor of the five San Antonio district community colleges to provide educational opportunities to two generations in our community.

Alexandria Werthman is the daughter of Amon and Kristin Werthman, and was raised in San Antonio, TX along with her younger sister, Bella.

Alexandria was homeschooled throughout high school and graduated in 2019. She attended the University of the Incarnate Word for 4 years, and is a May, 2023 graduate with a Bachelor of Science in rehabilitative sciences, with a concentration in athletic training and a minor in psychology. She has received academic honors awards within her program for her outstanding GPA. Along with being a dedicated student, Alexandria has been a student athlete on the UIW Dance Team all four years of undergrad, and was in a leadership position her senior year as team officer. Alexandria’s future plan is to further her education and pursue a Masters Degree in Healthcare Administration

Alexandria moved to Texas when she was 9 years old with her family all the way from Maui, Hawaii, and is proud to call San Antonio, Texas her home. Alexandria grew up in San Antonio heavily involved in dance, academics, and volunteering at church. She has a passion for learning new things, specifically health sciences.

Alexandria’s previous volunteer work has included volunteering with Sunday school at her church, Autism advocacy, and performances at local retirement centers and schools. She has a heart for community service, and wants to inspire children to keep pursuing their dreams. Throughout Alexandria’s life as a student, she understands the pressures of being in school and wants to advocate for more student support resources to help kids succeed in school, as well as more education of fine arts to give kids a creative outlet. She believes student support and creative outlets can help students thrive in school. Her message to young students is to never give up, and never be afraid to ask for help.

Alexandria and her mom, Kristin Werthman, were first introduced to fiesta in 2015 and fell in love with the festivities. She was enamored by the fiesta queens, and can’t believe she is becoming one herself, as this is her first time participating in fiesta as one of the official fiesta queens. She is most excited to use her platform as Reina de la Féria de las Flores to promote education and make connections with the students during her school visits to encourage children to stay in school and spread their wings in the world of academia. Alexandria is proud to serve the people and children in her community. Viva Fiesta 2024
