A city teen was named a top cadet in the country late last week.
Nathalie Castagner, from 2701 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps in Winnipeg, was recognized at the graduation parade of the Whitehorse Cadet Summer Training Centre Friday. Top-cadet awards are given to individuals who demonstrate excellence in overall performance and leadership during the six-week training period.
Castagner earned the award for her platoon in the expedition instructor course. Training consisted of rock climbing, abseiling, first-aid training and mountain biking, all in preparation for a gruelling expedition that saw cadet teams endure 40-kilometre hikes, 150-km mountain bike rides and long canoe paddles down Yukon's Tahkini River for 18 days.
"I really enjoyed it because it was very adventurous and I had lots of fun with my team," said Castagner.
