Amid the music, dancing, and formalwear on Saturday, April 8, one young man will be crowned Mr. Cardinal City 2017–2018 and represent San Bernardino High School (SBHS) for the next year.

“Being able to represent San Bernardino High and San Bernardino (city) has been an honor,” said SBHS senior and current Mr. Cardinal Julio Romero. “I’ve been able to be a role model to all the children in the community.”

As a contestant last year and as the reigning Mr. Cardinal, Romero has volunteered many hours to help the needy and attended multiple community events. It’s something expected of every Mr. Cardinal and his court.

“Mr. Cardinal spreads good will and shows the community the caliber of students attending San Bernardino High,” pageant coordinator Jamie Rios said. “And, every Mr. Cardinal gains valuable experience and gives back to his school and community.”

The 2017–2018 Mr. Cardinal contestants are: Javier Molina, Hazael Perez, Gabriel Arzuaga, Enrique Villanueva, Rogelio Jacquez-Barbosa, Nathan Hunter, Eduardo Negrete, Victor Mora, Gustavo Veliz, Justin Mendoza, Martin Quintana, Brandon Guerrero-Terriquez, Jason Mendoza, and Victor Hurtado.
