Venice, Fla. --

Cadet Airman Leah Bartlett from the Student Leadership Academy Cadet Squadron was recently recognized for her devotion to one of Civil Air Patrol’s core values; community service.

Bartlett was awarded the CAP Community Service Ribbon plus bronze device. The ribbon represents her 60 hours of community service to a non-profit organization and the bronze device represents an additional 60 hours of community service.

“Leah is the first member, ever, squadron’s history to receive this selfless award,” said squadron commander, Capt. Madeline Kirsten-Bouchane.

Bartlett preformed her community service for the Venice Youth Boating Association, a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to change young lives by enabling greater self-reliability, self-responsibility and self-confidence at early age.

The Student Leadership Academy Cadet Squadron is a school squadron located in Venice, Florida.

Bouchane added, “Leah’s service is a good role model for the other cadets, we’re very proud of her achievement!”
