Student Spotlight

Zoe Stevens Awarded Outstanding Junior Canadian Ranger of the Year for 2019

Posted on Nov 18, 2019

Zoe Stevens, Level III student from St. Mary’s All Grade, recently represented the Junior Canadian Rangers (JCRs) at the National War Memorial as a guest of the Royal Canadian Legion on November 11. She was chosen to attend along with three cadets from the province and escorted one of the dignitaries who laid a wreath at the site during the ceremony.

During her trip to Ottawa, she was awarded the Outstanding Junior Canadian Ranger of the Year for 2019. She was nominated by her Ranger patrol leader. The submission letter detailed the volunteer work she does with the JCRs in her community and at the JCR summer camp. She has also taken on leadership roles in map and compass training and was selected to attend advanced leadership training in British Columbia this summer. Stevens has been in the JCRs for six years.

While she was in Ottawa, from Nov. 8-12, Stevens visited the Parliament building, the war museum, and attended luncheons with Governor General Julie Payette and Silver Cross Mother Reine Samson Dawe. She also met Harjit Sajjan, the Minister of National Defence, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during the ceremony.

We send our sincerest congratulations to Zoe on this outstanding achievement!
