Grace Hall was full of entertainment on Friday, Nov. 16, where Cabrini students competed for the title of Mr. and Miss Cabrini. George Post and Christina Cimmino were chosen to be Mr. and Miss Cabrini of 2007.

Jack Sparrow opened the show by performing magic tricks and reading the minds of people in the audience. Sparrow introduced the three judges sitting in the back of the room, along with Mr. and Miss Cabrini of 2006, Jake Verterano and Christina Moglioni.

Four men and seven women from Cabrini competed in the Mr. and Miss Cabrini Pageant.

Each student was nominated by an organization with which they are involved. Mary Kate Korp, Christina Cimmino, Melissa Barrett, Annette Donato, Gina Mulranen, Nicole Hearn, Colleen Lefevre, Nick Moffa, Robert Moran, George Post and Patrick Trencansky kept the crowd entertained for the evening. Each competitor was announced by a song of their choice and paraded down the run way.

Each candidate had to reveal a talent of theirs in front of the audience and judges. The talents varied from singing a song and performing a dance routine to a magic show and baking cookies. Each student was full of energy and went above and beyond to find a talent to entertain the audience.

Mary Kate Korp, a junior elementary and special education dual major, said, “I really don’t have a performing talent, so I had to come up with one as quickly as possible. I knew I wanted to do something that would be original and entertaining, so Brian Scelzo gave me a crash course in performing magic tricks.”

The audience received a set of clappers, mints and a question card to write down a question of their choice to ask the students during the question round. Sparrow entertained the audience with magic tracks between each act. The judges eliminated seven contestants and chose the winners by asking one serious and one fun question that the audience provided.

Post was nominated by CAP Board and Cimmino by Student Government. He ran for Mr. Cabrini in the 2006 pageant and did not win.

Post, a senior English and communications major, said, “Last year, everyone around me expected me to win and I lost, so I tried not to get my hopes up this year, but it was awesome!”

Cimmino was unsure if she wanted to participate in the pageant, when first nominated. But, after much support from friends and family, she decided to compete for the crown.

Cimmino, a junior English and communications major, said, “I think the entire experience was just a huge rush and felt even better knowing that my family had come all the way from New York and I made the trip worth it for them.”
