A Rimbey teen has received the Canada Cord, the highest award offered in Pathfinders.

Skylar Corkle received the award last month in Airdrie at the Parkland Area Canada Cord and Chief Commissioner Awards Ceremony.

Corkle, an outgoing, friendly 15-year-old who enjoys camping, baking, crafts and art is in Grade 9 at Rimbey high school and a member of the Rimbey Multi Unit of Pathfinders. She said she was excited to receive the award.

She noted that her eight years in Guiding and the time spent working towards achieving the award has taught her many skills.

“I learned you can ask for help and I also learned patience,” she said.

Working for the award included community service such as picking up garbage including cigarette butts, helping out at the food bank and volunteering at sporting events.

Corkle also attended survivor camp where she learned to start a fire and use a cook stove to do her cooking.

She said the experience was good.

“I love the friendships with everyone.”

Corkle also attended a Spirit of Adventure Rendevous Camp sponsored by the Girl Guides held in British Columbia last year.

“It was awesome,” she said.

Corkle plans to join Rangers in the fall.
