Bridgewater Cadet Wins ACLC (NS) President’s Trophy
for the Outstanding Nova Scotia Army Cadet 2019-20
Pictured at the right is Cadet CWO Sara Greenough, RSM of 2688 Bridgewater Kinsmen RCACC, affiliated with the West Nova Scotia Regiment.
She has been awarded the President's Trophy of the Army Cadet League of Canada (NS Branch) as the Outstanding Army Cadet in Nova Scotia for 2019-20. The trophy is hers until next year; however, because of COVID-19, her photo is from the volunteer Vimy Tribute in April, and we have not presented the trophy as yet.
Below is the ACLC (NS) President’s Trophy, a bronze statuette of a cadet using map and compass. It stands about 1˝’ high and is intended to be presented annually to the most outstanding army cadet who meets the criteria below.
To qualify, a cadet must:
· have the Royal Canadian Legion Medal of Excellence,
· be a cadet until June the following year,
· be Master Cadet qualified,
· have demonstrated loyalty to his/her corps and the RCAC,
· be regarded as an excellent ambassador of the RCAC Program, and
· have successfully completed an Advanced Training Summer Course and/or participated in a Nationally Directed Activity.
Sara also wears the Strathcona Medal for Top Cadet in the Corps and the Army Cadet Service Medal and Bar for five years in the RCAC. She also has qualifications in Full Bore Phase 1, Leadership and Challenge, Physical Fitness, National Star of Excellence Level 2, and Wilderness First Aid.
CWO Greenough is, in the words of her Commanding Officer, Captain Bruce Barteaux, “academically intelligent, fitness conscious, a remarkable musician, a talented athlete very capable community supporter and a role model for not only the cadets in her corps but for those in the Region and Nationally.”
Certainly qualified and very deserving of this Provincial Level Award, CWO Sara Greenough has been nominated as Nova Scotia’s candidate for the national award, the Walsh Memorial Sword which recognizes the Outstanding Canadian Army Cadet.
Sara is the daughter of Heather and Scott Greenough of Bridgewater, and she is a student at Parkview Education Centre.
