You may recognize this week’s Campus Cutie, Justin Short, from the sidelines of Faurot Field where he is a cheerleader for the Tigers. When Justin’s not cheering, he’s singing for the campus a capella group Mizzou Forte. This senior certainly bleeds black and gold in everything he does. Mizzou-rah!
