The Cardinal Cadre’s primary purpose is to promote general public relations as official hosts and hostesses of our school. In this capacity, students serve as tour guides to visiting students and adults, ushers for auditorium activities, serve as information resources for Southport High School and liaisons between administrators or faculty and guests to our school. Members are selected through an application process. Applicants are evaluated on previous experiences, availability to serve, poise, personality, general appearance, scholastic standing, attendance and punctuality, communication skill, trustworthiness, ability to get along with others, and overall attitude. Cadre members must be good role models and outstanding representatives for Southport High School. A GPA of 2.5 is required upon selection and must be maintained.
