City Council recognizes HHS film student Fatima Aguillon

Film student Fatima Aguillon continues to make Harlandale ISD proud.

The HHS student was recognized during Wednesday night’s City Council meeting for winning the Organizations of World Heritage Cities (OWHC) international film competition titled “My City, Our World Heritage.”

Fatima’s film, which highlights San Antonio’s vibrant culture and World Heritage Missions, earned first place in the contest, beating out 15 entries from 13 other countries.

Mayor Ron Nirenberg congratulated the student and presented her with an honor certificate awarded by the OWHC.

“On behalf of the City of San Antonio and City Council, I proudly commend you on this outstanding achievement and extend my best wishes,” he said.

District 3 Councilwoman Rebecca Viagran also congratulated Fatima, as well as her film teacher Samuel Lerma, for making the award-winning short film.

“I want to congratulate Fatima in all of the work and dedication it took to make this video happen,” Viagran said. “To be able to show her movie at the Mission Marquee Plaza and win this prestigious award is a great honor; we are so proud.”

Lerma agreed and added, “Her work speaks for itself. Fatima spent many hours after class to make sure her movie was good, so I think it’s great that they are recognizing her for it.”

For Fatima, this recognition only enhances what has already been a great experience this year.

“I think being recognized at such a young age by the City is a great opportunity for my career,” she said. “It definitely makes all the hard work pay off.”
