The Commander’s Pennant:
2Lt Dorothy Tootoo’s devotion and commitment to the Cadet program in the North, and in particular, 3019 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps in Rankin Inlet, Nunavut, is a model and example of what one person’s influence can be in a community. Her perseverence to see that the training for all Cadets of 3019 RCACC is carried out in a fun, challenging and safe manner is admirable. She is a leader that the community can be proud to call their own.
2Lt Tootoo has instilled a strong sense of pride within her cadet corps by introducing traditional Inuit culture into all aspects of her Cadets’ training. 3019 RCACC has continued to grow and is the envy of all other Cadet Corps and squadrons across the North. While under her Command, she continuously searches for ways to improve her Corps. 2Lt Tootoo’s innovative approaches to delivering a youth program have had far-reaching impacts and her methods are renowned throughout the North and indeed across Canada.
2Lt Tootoo exemplifies the professionalism of an Officer in the Canadian Forces and a leader of the Cadet movement. She single-handedly advanced the objectives and goals of the Cadet program through un-paralleled dedication and commitment. 2Lt Tootoo can be proud as she has helped develop the next leaders of Rankin Inlet, Nunavut, and Canada.
