A NAVAL cadet from Terrace has been promoted to a commissioned officer in the Canadian Forces.

Annie Lee received the promotion to acting sub-lieutenant while serving aboard the Cadet Summer Training Centre: Her Majesty’s Canadian Ship (H.M.C.S.) Quadra from commander Mike McCormick CD, commanding officer of HMCS Quadra.

Lee enrolled in the cadet program in 2003 with Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps Bicknell in Richmond after her friends convinced her to attend one evening as they were already part of the program.

In 2006 she completed her eight-week Marine Engineer course through the cadet program at H.M.C.S. Quadra. She went on to become the first ticketed ORCA class cadet Marine Engineer.

She is currently employed at H.M.C.S. Quadra as the divisional officer for the next generation of Marine Engineer cadets.

Annie resides in Terrace where she is a full-time nursing student at Northwest Community College and she intends to continue her studies through their UNBC transfer program until her graduation in 2015.

She plans to continue her employment at HMCS Quadra in the summers through her years at university.

She currently volunteers countless hours with the local Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron 747 Unicorn where she instructs youths age 12-18 every week.
