New Westminster cadets receive awards

A New Westminster cadet is being recognized for her leadership.

Margaret Anteros, a member of 2316 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, was awarded the Lieutenant-General J.E. Vance Award at the final parade and sunset ceremony at the cadet summer training centre in Vernon.

Anteros was at the centre participating in the fitness and sports instructor course, a six-week program involving the theory and benefit of sports, injury prevention and safety, nutritional planning and organization of team sports.

The training centre develops skills in 1150 army, sea and air cadets from across Western Canada every summer.

Sea cadet Michaelson Titchai, 15, from the Fraser corps in New Westminster was recently awarded the Army, Navy and Airforce Veterans medal of merit as the top cadet during a six-week drill and ceremonial course in Comox. Berthelot won out over 29 other shipmates from across Canada.
