My name is Chief Petty Officer Second Class Abagail Rogers, and I am proud to say that I am apart of RCSCC 309 Fort William located in Thunder Bay, Ontario. I would love to serve this year as Chief of General Training and I know that I would be the best candidate for this position because I would be extremely beneficial to all of the cadets and staff of HMCS Ontario because I have numerous qualifications and a diverse skill set, that I believe would make a strong positive impact on everyone attending CTC HMCS Ontario. I am very efficient in my duties and complete tasks to the best of my ability. I have always been passionate about the cadet program and always encouraged others to join.
I have always enjoyed going to summer camp, and I have done it every year. Some of the courses I have taken include General Training, Air Rifle Marksmanship Instructor, and Intermediate Sail. These courses have helped me build strong leadership qualities, teamwork skills, and have helped me open up. I would like to help other cadets enjoy camp and gain new skills just as much as I did.
Since I have joined cadets I have helped many different organizations and events that involve volunteer work like: volunteer for events like poppy days, tag days, and helping out at local teas with the corps. I enjoy giving up my time to help out in the community, and am a great team player. I always enjoy helping and participating in all activity’s in the corps from biathlon to drill competitions.
Throughout my years in my corps I have gained many awards for various things like: my First year of cadets I received Top New Entry, and throughout my years I have also received things like General Efficiency (May 2015), Best Dressed (2016), The Legion Medal of Excellence (2016), A sliver Provincials Biathlon Pin and Sailing Pin (2017), and the medal I’m most proud of would be The Lord of Strathcona (2017). I feel like some of the awards I have gained throughout my cadet career show how dedicated and how hard of a worker I am when it comes to the cadet program.
