Princess Silver Star Piper Cahoon is moving onto provincial honours.
The Vernon youth emerged as one of the winners of the Queen Silver Star Excellence Program (Megan Fowles was queen) in 2020, the last year the program ran.
Now Cahoon is about to take part in the BC Ambassador program for youth in Lake Cowichan July 28.
The BC Ambassador program is an esteemed opportunity reserved for accomplished community youth ambassadors. By participating in the Queen’s Excellence program, Cahoon qualified to take part in this provincial program.
“Piper Cahoon exemplifies the qualities we value in our youth – leadership, compassion, and a dedication to making a difference,” said Vernon Winter Carnival executive director Kris Fuller. “Her success in the Queen Silver Star Excellence Program and acceptance into the BC Ambassador program are testaments to her exceptional abilities and commitment to community involvement.”
As Cahoon continues to embark on her journey as a community youth ambassador, she sets an inspiring example for other young individuals, encouraging them to develop their skills, contribute to their communities, and strive for excellence in all endeavors.
“I am excited and a little bit nervous to be going to this conference,” said Cahoon. “No matter who wins, I am just proud to be taking part. We have to write a speech about our community and I’m excited to share that Vernon is the newly dubbed Trail Capital of B.C. I love hiking.”
