At long last, the Port St. Joe Tiger Sharks have a mascot.

The as of yet unnamed shark mascot made its debut at the elementary school last week where it interacted with students and then showed its dorsal fin in public at the football game last Friday.

So what’s this shark’s name? That’s a question that can only be answered by a student at Port St. Joe Elementary or the high school.

The student bodies of both Port St. Joe schools have been asked to play a vital role in naming the mascot and will be encouraged to submit suggestions until Friday, Nov. 15, after which a group of faculty judges will narrow down the options to the best six.

Once the finalist names are chosen, students will be able to vote for their favorite during their lunches in return for a small donation that will go toward helping a school-affiliated group to be determined.

The mascot will officially be given its name at a future event.
