LCPL Wallace (71 Det) received the Glaziers Cadet Community 2023 Award and SSI Rozier (94 Det) was awarded the Glaziers Stockdale Salver Award 2023, collected on her behalf by GLSESACF Commandant Col Johnson.
Cadet Lance Corporal Wallace joined 71 Detachment in January 2022, a very active and enthusiastic young woman from the start. She has embraced the ACF way of life and immersed herself into every aspect of training and attended almost every event since joining. LCpl Wallace has represented her Company, Sector and Region in Football and Archery. Notably twice receiving the recognition of National Sports Champion for London district. As such she has been selected to become a sports ambassador for the Sector. She has become a key figure within the cadets, supporting all aspects of the ACF experience where she can.
LCpl Wallace’s energy is infectious, and her peers recognise the value she brings to any team. She has become somewhat of a counsellor to her peers. Often, she will take lead on supporting junior cadets, including giving them a safe space to talk so they feel understood. Alongside all this she is also a part of the Sector Corps of Drums. Recently at the annual West Indian Association of Service Personnel (WASP) parade she took the lead role of Drum Major ensuring the team were prepared and ready to perform - a display of her natural leadership ability and the confidence the team have in her.
LCpl Wallace clearly displays caring attributes. Outside of cadets she helps to support junior sports enthusiasts, particularly young women to participate in sport and excel through dedicated training. Being such a positive ambassador gives her the opportunity to grow in her own confidence whilst ensuring others have a platform to excel. On various social media platforms LCpl Wallace also offers support to other young people and sets an example to others. LCpl Wallace is an exceptional cadet that lives by the Army Cadet Force core Values and Standards. She is entirely selfless in all her actions and puts the interest of others before her own and always with a smile.
