ARKANSAS CITY — The top-two finalists for Queen Alalah LXXXVII, Livian Eaton and Halle Bucher, were recently presented with scholarships.
Eaton, who was crowned Queen Alalah LXXXVII on Oct. 26, was awarded a Dorothy Moore Harbaugh (Queen Alalah I) Endowed Scholarship worth $600 and a scholarship on behalf of the Ark City Clinic worth $500.
“These scholarships are so kind of everyone,” Eaton said. “This is definitely an honor. I hope to attend the Washburn University nursing program and plan to use the scholarships towards my schooling.”
Bucher was presented with a $350 scholarship thanks to the Arkalalah Executive Committee. She was presented with the check from her mother, Tasha Bucher, who serves as secretary for the Arkalalah Executive Committee.
“This scholarship means a lot to me, especially having my mom be a part of it,” Halle Bucher said. “It was a great honor to finish runner-up and I plan to use this scholarship towards helping me transfer to Kansas State University.”
Dr. Kori Gregg, Cowley College vice president for institutional advancement, and Tasha Bucher, secretary for the Arkalalah Executive Committee, were on hand to present Eaton and Bucher with the scholarships.
