Bringing Sexy Back; it’s more than just a song to George Post and Christina Cimmino. For them, it represents their time as Mr. and Miss Cabrini.
Post and Cimmino won the pageant that was held back in November.
“One of my funny questions was what would my theme song be, and I answered Sexy Back, and it just kinda caught on,” Post said.
This year’s pageant was different from previous years. In the past, anyone could be nominated to be in the pageant. However, this year, the nominees had to be involved in campus organizations. They both agreed that it was nice to be recognized for being involved.
“I won not because people like me, but for the things I do,” Post said.
Post and Cimmino are both English and communication majors, Post a senior and Cimmino a junior. Both are also extremely involved around campus.
Cimmino is the vice-president of SGA this year and president for next year, sits on the Alumni Board, SGA subcommittees and has an internship with an insurance company.
Post is on CAP board as the director of weekend programming, a SEARCH leader, involved with the Wolfington Center and producing a video for incoming freshmen. In addition to all of these activities, both take full course loads.
Their responsibilities as Mr. and Miss Cabrini are minimal. They attend campus events, wearing their crowns and sashes, of course. They went to the Black and White Gala that was held the day after the pageant and the formal that was held in the beginning of April.
At each event, they were announced. After the pageant, they both noticed that they got a lot more attention from the student body. “I had like 10 facebook friend requests the next day. More people recognize us,” Cimmino said.
Since there aren’t many responsibilities behind having the title, it was more of a fun thing for all of them to do and a way to be recognized for all of their hard work around campus. Performing in the pageant itself was a great time for Post and Cimmino.
Both had a great deal of family support at the pageant, as well as friends. Many members of Post’s family attended, as well as Cimmino’s, who came all the way from New York.
Being involved in the pageant and winning has been a great experience for both Post and Cimmino. Already friends before the event, they were very excited for the other when they won. They both know that the experience will be a great memory that will last them a lifetime.
“The best part about being Miss Cabrini is that I get to do it with one of my best friends,” Cimmino said.
