DGSB Student Honoured at Her Majesty's Cadet of the Year Award Ceremony

In a prestigious event held on Tuesday 26th September 2017, Cadet Staff Sergeant Callum Tyrrell of the Dover Grammar School for Boys Combined Cadet Force was honoured in his receipt of a coveted 'Cadet of the Year Award'.  Callum, currently a year 12 student at the school, was one of only seven cadets throughout the whole of Kent to receive the coveted prize of 'Her Majesty's Lord-Lieutenant's Cadet of the Year Award'.

The event, held at Salomons Estate, Royal Tunbridge Wells, was well attended and marks the achievement of outstanding service by an individual to their Cadet movement. A Certificate was awarded, together with a Lord-Lieutenant's Badge, which the individual is entitled to wear when in uniform.  In addition, each year the Lord-Lieutenant appoints cadets to support him on official engagements throughout the year they are appointed. A high honour indeed and representative of Callum's ongoing commitment, achievement and inspiring behaviour.  A massive, well-deserved congratulations are in order!
