A Chilliwack teenager’s dedication to the Army Cadets has earned him a prestigious award.
Each year, the Army Cadet League of Canada (ACLC), British Columbia Branch recognizes one deserving cadet in the Pacific Region who has demonstrated leadership, initiative, mentorship, and dedication to the support of the Army Cadet Program in his/her community.

The award was created in 2007 by Col. Gene Lake, who was president of the ACLC B.C. Branch from 2000 to 2010.
