Words from Your 2017 Mule Day Queen, Kendyl Colvett

February 26, 2017. This is a day in my life I will never forget: this is the day I was finally crowned the Mule Day Queen. When it came to pageants, I was a late bloomer. I started when I was 14, while every other girl I knew had been doing them their whole life. I thought for sure I wouldn’t stand a chance compared to them, but that wasn’t the case. As the years went by and I started to become more interested pageants, I would hear my friends rave on and on about the Mule Day pageant. Of course I had always seen them at the Mule Day parade and at the park, but I didn’t quite yet understand what made them so special.
I finally decided to compete in the pageant in 2015. I was still fairly new to pageants so even though I had not made the court, it was the experience of a lifetime meeting new girls and getting tips to make me better for next year! In 2016, I went in with the goal of making the court and I did just that! I placed 1st Runner-Up in the pageant and I had no idea what I was in for with such a great group of girls. That year on court, is what made me fall in love with Mule Day. I saw Mule Day through a totally different perspective, and I made me truly cherish the celebration our town has taken pride in for so many years. After that year, I knew I had to be Mule Day Queen. I spent the year preparing my speech and reciting it to anyone who would listen, picking the perfect dress, and perfecting my interview skills. February 26 was finally here, and I was a nervous wreck. I wanted this so badly and had worked so hard, I was terrified I’d mess up. I loved having the chance to compete with my sister that year. People always asked us if it turned us against each other, but it didn’t. We enjoyed getting to spend the extra time together and helping each other out with something we had in common. Interviews came and went, and it was finally pageant night. Everyone had killed it that night, so I knew it could really go to anyone. I was mostly just proud of myself for doing my best and leaving it all on the stage. It was time for crowning and as they started calling runner-ups, I was so excited because some of my best friends had made the court!! It finally got down to the queen and all I remember was hearing them say #4 and I started crying. It was truly a moment I’ll never forget in my life, as I had finally achieved one of the most prestigious titles our county has to offer.
To Katie, Mallory, Ginger, and Alayna, thank yall for being the best court ever. From standing by me while I made my speech at the capitol, to singing karaoke on stage in the park, I could not have asked for a better group of girls to spend my week with. I will forever remember our memories we made that week! To any girl thinking of competing in the pageant, PLEASE DO IT. It was the best decision I ever made in my life. If you don’t win or place this year, keep trying!! You will only get better from here and I promise you, you will not regret your decision. The Mule Day pageant is a different kind of pageant. It’s not about standing on stage with a pretty dress and walking around. It’s about giving the young women in this community a chance to express themselves and make a difference. This pageant really does seek out girls who want to be somebody and serve their community. After 2 years of serving on the Mule Day Court, I have finally realized what made them so special. I can’t wait to crown a new girl and welcome her into this amazing sisterhood. Thank you, Mule Day for giving me some of the best memories in my life.

Your 2017 Mule Day Queen,
Kendyl Ansley Colvett
