Congratulations to Addison C. and Armstrong for their promotions to sergeant and to Tinkler, who became a corporal. Their mixture of high attendance, well kept uniform, use of initiative, strong course reports and good attitude has seen them rewarded. The decisions were tough for the staff to make and obviously left some disappointed. We've been pleased to see those who missed out on promotions congratulate their fellow cadets and get behind their new NCOs, showing the maturity the squadron expects from its cadets. Remember; if you follow the principle of RISE- respect, integrity, service and excellence, you could be next.
