Shel­burne teen par­tic­i­pated in train­ing

Tri-County Vanguard - - NEWS -

Last week we ran a story about some Shel­burne County teenagers who had par­tic­i­pated in a six- week Boatswain’s Mate Course at Her Majesty’s Cana­dian Ship (HMCS) Aca­dia Cadet Train­ing Cen­tre.

The ar­ti­cle and pho­tos were sup­plied by HMCS Aca­dia Cadet Train­ing Cen­tre. The train­ing cen­tre gave our news­pa­per a photo that was iden­ti­fied as Travis Nick­er­son but it turns out an in­cor­rect photo had been given to us. Un­for­tu­nately, their er­ror was not caught un­til after our Aug. 16 is­sue of the Tri-County Van­guard went to press.

This is Travis Nick­er­son who par­tic­i­pated in the pro­gram. As stated in last week’s ar­ti­cle, he said it was a great ex­pe­ri­ence.

“I hope cadets in the fu­ture get to ex­pe­ri­ence this as well,” said the 16-year-old Nick­er­son, a cadet with 180 Saxon Royal Cana­dian Sea Cadet Corps who spent four days sail­ing from Que­bec City to Hal­i­fax on board HMCS Toronto.

As for whose photo we were given and ran last week, his name was Joshua Hamel of Agnus, On­tario, who also had a great ex­pe­ri­ence.
