I have the honor of serving as Miss Frisco 2022. I have been a heart health advocate for several years. Heart disease runs rampant on my mom's side of the family and I know that it can be prevented with the right lifestyle. I don't want to lose another precious family member, friend, colleague, or Texan to heart disease -- but, I almost did.
In the late afternoon of May 6, 2022 (yes, just a few short weeks ago), my father suffered a severe heart attack while riding his motorcycle. He blacked out and crashed head on into a large road construction sign traveling at 70 mph. This single vehicle accident altered the trajectory of my family's life.
I am Taylor Kilpatrick and I am so thankful that my dad survived the heart attack and is recovering from his extensive wounds that were a result. He underwent 5 surgeries in 10 days and, since his accident a month ago, has not been able to return home. Now, my mission as a heart health advocate is to ensure that others do not experience the challenges we are facing because of heart disease. As Miss Texas, I aim to save lives and prevent accidents such as my dad's because of my passion for heart health.
A little more about me: I am a 2020 graduate of Texas Christian University majoring in Strategic Communications with a Dance emphasis where I was able to apply many scholarships earned through the Miss America Organization. Following college, I was blessed to join the American Heart Association (AHA) as a Project Coordinator and I recently celebrated my one year anniversary. At AHA I work in the Youth Market Division where I am able to coordinate programs for youth, parents and school administrators all across the United States focused on improving heart health. Through the Miss Texas Organization, I am able to continue that work via my social impact initiative, Heart of Gold. Both personally and professionally I am committed to saving lives.
Let's do this Texas!
Each year, the Miss Texas Organization is proud to present the Miss Texas Competition Magazine.
