On May 4, the cadets from 2963 Seaforth Highlanders of Canada Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps (RCACC) held their 41st Annual Ceremonial Review with Major Steve McNally, CD from the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada presiding as the Reviewing Officer.
The Annual Ceremonial Review (ACR) is a chance for the cadets to showcase all they have learned over the course of the past training year, and to be presented with their certificates of achievement for completing the training level they are currently in. The following awards were also presented for: Top Score, Air Rifle – CWO Makenna Gregorchuk; Best New Recruit – Cpl Maikel Lund; Best Dressed Cadet – Cpl Ally Sanford; Best Senior NCO – WO Drake Parent; Most Improved Cadet – Cpl Samantha Urquhart; Best Attendance – MWO Thomas Lavric; Mayne-Surtees Award for Outstanding Achievement – CWO Makenna Gregorchuk; Legion Medal of Excellence – MWO Thomas Lavric; and Lord Strathcona Trust Medal – MWO Shayla Gregorchuk.
Cadets that receive their third, fourth, and fifth year (Silver, Gold and Master Cadet respectively) training certificates also receive high school credits that go toward the required amount for graduation.
As the training year ends, the cadets are now looking forward to attending various summer training opportunities at Vernon Cadet Training Centre and Albert Head Cadet Training Centre, where they will receive additional skills beyond their local training, and they also get a monetary training bonus.
Regular training begins again in September for youth aged 12 to 18 years, with most training taking place at the 2963 Seaforth Army Cadets Training Property in Wilson Creek. Older teens are still encouraged to join; it’s never too late!
