Kyndal Dutton


Kyndal DuttonImmersing herself in activities at Cowley College, sophomore Kyndal Dutton can be found all around the Arkansas City campus. The soft spoken Dutton will have her time to shine when she graces the Robert Brown Theatre stage as one of five finalists for Queen Alalah LXXXV. Coronation is set for 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28 in the Robert Brown Theatre.

Dutton is the daughter of Brian and Kim Dutton of Winfield. She is the granddaughter of Judy and Derryl Rising of Burden, KS, and Lois Henderson. She has a sister, Brianna 15, and a brother, Marshall 12.

She graduated from Winfield High School in 2015. At Winfield, she participated in Link Crew, National Honor Society, golf, soccer, dance, and graduated in the top-10 percent in her class.

Living off campus, Dutton did not want to just go to class and then head home. So, the sophomore pre-medicine major decided to get involved. At Cowley, she is a member of the women’s soccer and dance teams, and is a Cowley Tutor, student ambassador, and vice president of scholarship for Phi Theta Kappa.

“Cowley feels like a second home,” Dutton said. “I love the teachers here, especially Pam Smith. She is always in good spirits and there to help you out.”

With her mother, Kim, being a cancer nurse in Winfield, Dutton has grown up with a caring personality. She hopes to one day become a family physician and be able to help people.

She has fond memories of attending the Arkalalah parade as a child and is excited to be one of five Queen Alalah finalists.

“It is an honor I was not expecting,” Dutton said. “I just want to have fun and enjoy it.”

Away from Cowley, Dutton is employed at Quail Ridge Golf Course in Winfield.

After graduating from Cowley, Dutton is considering transferring to Kansas State University to pursue a degree in Biology. However, she plans on enjoying her last year at Cowley and being a Queen finalist.

“I absolutely love Cowley,” Dutton said. “Coming here was probably one of the best decisions I have ever made.”
