South Charlotte mom Cynthia Griner jokingly calls herself Queen of the Griner family. Now, this mom of four has the crown to back it up. Last month, Griner, 43, won Mrs. North Carolina International, a pageant that recognizes the accomplishments of married women. The actress, model and CEO of “Purple Passion 4 Alzheimer’s” will head to Chicago this summer to compete for the national crown. MomsCharlotte editor Jennifer Rothacker spoke with Griner about her win.
Q. How did you get involved with pageants?
