Cadet Taylor Lott of Agassiz,  was selected as the best cadet in 11 Platoon in the third intake of General Military Training at Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre.

Cadet Lott is a member of 1789 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, Agassiz, B.C.

Cadet McKenzie and 170 other army cadets attended the Army Cadet General Military Training Course which sees the cadets introduced to communal living, participate in an overnight Basic Trades Field Exercise, challenge the mini confidence course, improve their accuracy with the air rifle, take part in a summer biathlon, learn orienteering and receive information on more senior courses that will be available to them in the coming years.

During the summer, more than 1300 Army Cadets from western Canada will have spent up to six weeks in the Okanagan Valley training centre, expanding the training they receive at their home corps, developing new skills and forming friendships.

The Cadet Program is a national program for young Canadians aged 12 to 18 who are interested in participating in a variety of fun, challenging and rewarding activities while learning about the sea, army and air activities of the Canadian Armed Forces. Cadets make valuable contributions to Canadian society on a daily basis in terms of environmental, citizenship and community activities. Cadets also learn valuable life and work skills such as teamwork, leadership and citizenship.
