Mission impossible was more like “A Golden Mission” for the 2017-18 Miss Claflin University.

Cecillia Hackett, a junior double major in business administration and philosophy and religion, was crowned Miss Claflin University on Oct. 26.

On “A Golden Mission” with Her Majesty’s secret service, she gave her fellow Claflinites an event with the theme 007 mission impossible.

A dance number was presented by the campus queens, along with special performances from Claflin’s very own Pulse.

Angel McFadden gifted a tribute to the queen, singing “Golden” by Jill Scott.

“She looked dropped-dead gorgeous,” Morgan N said..

“I really love her entrance and her dress was amazing,” Jamaica K said.

“I am very humbled and very blessed to hold this position,” Hackett said.
