2010 Tulip Queen Selected

Posted: Tuesday, November 10th, 2009 at 6:31 am


A packed auditorium of approximately 750 people was on hand Monday night at Pella Christian High School to see Heidi Schulte named as the 2010 Tulip Time Queen. Heidi is the daughter of Matt and Carol Schulte. Schulte said it was hard to put into words how she felt when her name was announced as Tulip Queen.

“This is just so unreal and I’m so blessed that the Lord gave me this opportunity with these girls tonight and for the rest of the year,” said Schulte after the announcement.

Joining Schulte on the Royal Court are Morgan Anderson, Courtney Kelderman, Bekah Posthuma, and Sarah Van Gorp.

The Royal Court was selected from twelve outstanding finalists by a panel of nearly three dozen judges who faced a difficult selection process. The candidates were judged on their interviews one-on-one with the judges and on stage, their poise, personality, appearance, and voice. Schulte says her experience with the other candidates was her favorite part of the evening.

Heidi Schulte and the 2010 Royal Court will represent Pella and Tulip Time at several events leading up to and surrounding the Tulip Time celebration.
