Sea Cadet Tracy feted for dedication to empowering youngsters

A Sea Cadet has been handed an award for displaying ‘outstanding leadership’ in her field.

Petty Officer Tracy Stevens, of Southwark Unit, has been honoured with the Lord Lieutenant’s Award for her exceptional dedication and meritorious service to the cadets of London.

She was presented her award by the Lord Lieutenant for Greater London, Sir Kenneth Olisa.

Southwark Sea Cadets is a leading youth organisation dedicated to providing young people with opportunities for personal development, adventure and leadership through nautical activities and training. 

Established in 1942, the unit has a proud history of empowering young people to reach their full potential and become responsible citizens.

Tracy, 58, of Friary Road, Peckham, has demonstrated outstanding leadership, mentorship, and commitment during her tenure at Southwark Sea Cadets and across London Southern District, according to her unit in Surrey Square, Kennington.

“Her tireless efforts have positively impacted the lives of numerous cadets, fostering personal growth, discipline, and a sense of community among the youth,” they said.

The Lord Lieutenant’s Award celebrates individuals who demonstrate exemplary service and make significant contributions to their community and she has shown plenty of that since joining in 2001. 

Cadets district officer Lt Cdr James Thompson, said: “Tracy’s passion for nurturing the potential of our cadets is truly inspiring. “Her unwavering dedication and exemplary leadership have elevated the Sea Cadets community across South London, and we are immensely proud to see her receive this well-deserved honour.”

Accepting the Lord Lieutenant’s Award, PO Tracy Stevens offered her heartfelt appreciation to her colleagues, mentors, and the entire Sea Cadets community for their support and encouragement.
