Surrey cadet gets a summer promotion

Stephani Cheung awarded position based on her previous successes.

Army Cadet Stephani Cheung of Surrey has been appointed Group Sergeant Major for the Expedition Training Group, becoming one of six senior cadet appointments at Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre.

This summer, more than 1,000 cadets from Western Canada are training at the North Okanagan facility for periods from two to six weeks.

Cheung, who is the Regimental Sergeant Major of 2812 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps (Seaforth Highlanders), was awarded her position based on her previous successes both at a summer training centre and her home corps, which included detailed assessments of her leadership abilities, instructional skills, as well as her dress and deportment.

Cheung is studying Criminology at Simon Fraser University, planning for a career in uniformed policing, either in the Canadian Armed Forces or the RCMP.

This summer, is Cheung’s final summer with the Cadet Program as a cadet – she will turn 19 in October.

However, she plans to enrol in the Cadet Instructor Cadre and return to Vernon as an officer. “I stayed home one summer and I cried almost every day,” she said. “I can’t imagine a summer that I’m not at camp.”
