Fort St. John cadet Avery Warner receives top honours

Standing out for her participation, drill, dress, and deportment, Cadet Avery Warner of Fort St. John’s 2276 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps was awarded the Top Cadet of her Platoon upon her completion of the two week General Training Course at the Vernon Cadet Training Centre (VCTC).

“Receiving this award is was really nice. We tried a bit of everything like drill, marksmanship, and band. During the two weeks we had a fielding training exercise and basically the course gave a chance to experience everything that army cadets has to offer,” said Warner, who plans to return to the VCTC next summer for the three week Basic Drill and Ceremonial Course.

“This experience has really helped me improve my drill and I’ve also made a lot of friends.”

The General Training Course is a two-week introduction to the summer training courses offered through the Cadet program. The cadets explore all the various aspects of the cadet program such as music, spots, marksmanship, expedition training and drill.

VCTC, located in Vernon, British Columbia, welcomes cadets from across Western Canada for two, three and six-week summer courses in a wide range of areas including music, drill and ceremonial, fitness and sports, marksmanship and expedition.

Over the next six weeks over 1,500 cadets will be trained at VCTC and the skills and experience that the cadets gain throughout the summer will be incorporated back at their home units to further grow and develop the cadet program.
