Air cadet Liam Hunter of 848 Squadron in Langford is a top cadet.

The teen received his flight’s Top Cadet Award during the fifth and final graduation parade for Albert Head Cadet Training Centre.

“Cadet Hunter is a respectful and athletic, and inspires others to push their limits,” said his flight commander, 2nd Lieut. Edwin Cheung. “During the race with their competing flight at the confidence (obstacle) course he pumped up his flight, motivating them to a win.”

One top cadet is selected from each flight, based on qualities that make up a model air cadet. Recipients demonstrate exemplary performance in their drill, dress and deportment, and are considered to be team players in their flights.

Each flight was comprised of approximately 25 cadets.

Cadets received awards during a unique parade of more than 200 cadets graduating from a variety of three- and six-week courses in areas such as aviation technology and aerospace, sports and fitness and survival. With The Honourable Judith Guichon, lieutenant governor of British Columbia as reviewing officer, the graduates treated guests and spectators with calisthenics, music and drill routines.

“No matter which direction you decide to travel, you will all be better equipped for the future as a result of the experiences here at Albert Head Cadet Camp,” said Guichon, during her address. “I see that all of you who go through the cadet experience learn so much about self-discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship, citizenship and of course, it appears to me there is a great deal of fun to be had along the way.”

 

 

Hunter completed the three-week Basic Fitness and Sports Course which provides cadets with the fundamentals of recreational sports training.
