Last Chance to Vote

It's that time of the year when we're selecting who the recipients are for awards at Annual Ceremonial Review. One award is entirely up to the Cadets to vote for: The squadron leader (S/L) J.R. Goudie award. This award is presented to the cadet voted on by their peers in the squadron as the individual who helped them the most during the year. 


We're asking each cadet to provide and rank their top 1-3 names of those that helped them out most. Vote here.
