Leighton Jordan, (born November 5, 1992) is an American beauty pageant titleholder from Suwanee, Georgia who was named Miss Georgia 2012.[1]


She won the title of Miss Georgia on June 23, 2012, when she received her crown from outgoing titleholder Michaela Lackey. Jordan’s platform is the “Sibling Support Project,” a national program designed to increase peer support and information opportunities for siblings of special needs children.[2] Her older brother suffers from numerous health problems, including deafness, cerebral palsy and epilepsy, inspiring her work with families with special needs children.[3] Her competition talent was a ballet en pointe to “He's a Pirate.”[4] Jordan was home-schooled though high school, and plans to attend college at Georgia State University to study nursing and become a pediatric oncology nurse practitioner.[5][6]
