A CADET from Kirton has been selected for one of the most important roles with the Army Cadet Force.

Cadet Staff Sgt Kate Maskell, from Kirton Detachment Lincolnshire Army Cadet Force, has been named Lord Lieutenant’s Cadet for 2012/13 after impressing during interviews held at the cadets’ annual camp.

Kate was chosen for her bubbly, bright personality and her willingness to step out of her comfort zone to take part in many of the events the cadet force offers.

During her year in office Kate will attend a number of events with Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire Tony Worth.

She will be officially appointed on September 30.

Kate has already progressed through the cadets’ training syllabus to four star level and will be attending a Master Cadet course run by the Army.

She has also attended four cadet annual summer camps, leadership courses, instructors courses, trained with the RAF Regiment Reserves from Waddington, took part in a trip to Cyprus with 2nd Battalion, Royal Anglian Regiment, as well as numerous cadet and community projects.

She said: “I am so excited.

“When I started cadets I never thought I could achieve so much and here I am as Lord Lietenant’s Cadet.”
