Arkalalah

Queen Alalah LXXXVI Finalists

Day eager to experience Arkalalah in a whole new light

Jordan DayJordan Day is glad she made the decision to stay close to home and attend Cowley College instead of attend a four-year school. The decision has paid off with Day being named one of five finalists for Queen Alalah LXXXVI. Coronation is set for 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27 in the Robert Brown Theatre.


Day is the daughter of Joel and Teresa Day of Arkansas City. Grandparents are, Vance and Sandy Day and Judy Day-Trenary, all of Ark City. She has a sister, Elyssa 21.


Day graduated from Arkansas City High School in 2016. At ACHS, she participated in softball, Student Council, KAYs, Future Farmers of America, Usherettes, Leadership class, and was a Soroptimist Girl.
At Cowley, she is a Student Ambassador and is major in pre-nursing.


“I am glad I came to Cowley. I have met a lot of new friends,” Day said.


Each year she looks forward to seeing friends and family during Arkalalah.


“It will be exciting to experience Arkalalah in a whole different way this year,” Day said. “When I was little I always thought how cool it would be to be on the Queen’s float in the parade.”


Away from Cowley, Day is a registered CNA and EMT and works in the emergency room at the South Central Kansas Regional Medical Center.


Her interest in that line of work grew out of her father being a paramedic and firefighter for 32 years.
After Cowley, she plans to attend the Butler Community College Nursing Program.


Before leaving Cowley she hopes to continue making memories.


“It will be fun to experience Arkalalah with this group of girls,” Day said.
