CONGRATULATIONS TO TATIANA CHOW!
The Port Moody Heritage Society would like to congratulate one of our wonderful volunteers, Tatiana Chow on receiving the Duke of Edinburgh Silver International Award of Achievement. She was recognized on November 21 at Government House in Victoria where Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon presented her with her certificate.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award program is a non-competitive and self-directed program that challenges youth aged 14 to 24 to achieve their personal best in four areas community service, skill development, physical fitness, and outdoor expeditions. The Award consists of three achievement levels – bronze, silver and gold – that are earned in succession. The Duke of Edinburgh International Award was founded by His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. Since its establishment in Canada in 1963, more than 500,000 Canadians have taken the challenge.
Tatiana has earned the Silver International Award of Achievement by volunteering at a number of locations within the community. To fulfill her service component of the award she has volunteered at numerous events for the Port Moody Station Museum, is a Junior Leader for a Girl Guide Sparks Group and also is involved with the Port Moody Arts Centre.
She is now striving towards the Gold Award. We look forward to helping Tatiana with any requirements that she needs to complete her goal in achieving the next award! Congratulations Tatiana and thank you for all the help you have given during all of our events!
