Cheshire ACF’s Public Relations Officer, SI Keith Terrill aged 21, has been selected to be one of just a handful of recipients of the University of Chester Outstanding Contribution to Community Valedictory Award.

SI Terrill who’s currently in his final year of a Bachelor of Science Degree in Games Development has been an Adult Volunteer with Cheshire Army Cadet Force since January 2015 as an Adult Instructor at Chester ‘Castle’ Detachment, having previously been a cadet himself in his native Cumbria. In December 2016 he was appointed Public Relations Officer after taking an ever increasing role in the County’s PR, taking many of the photographs you see on Cheshire’s social media and website.
To be singled out, SI Terrill had to compete against other student volunteers with a written application and formal presentation to a panel of senior figures from the University of Chester.
The panel were impressed by both his application and presentation where he discussed why he chose to become an Adult Instructor, his roles and responsibilities as Public Relations Officer with the ACF and how he expects his experiences, knowledge & qualifications gained in the ACF will help his future career.
In June SI Terrill will be formally presented with this award at the University of Chester’s Valedictory Awards alongside his peers. Along with his award certificate, SI Terrill will receive prize money which he has chosen to donate entirely to Cheshire Army Cadet Force.
