Elmwood Grade 12 student and Duke of Edinburgh Programme Leader, Zoe Kuiack had the distinct honour of greeting his Royal Highness, Prince Charles, and the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla upon their arrival in Ottawa on May 17.

Zoe was chosen as a representative by her First Nation Pikwàkanagàn thanks to her contributions to the community through her volunteer work —most notably through the Duke of Edinburgh program and her high academic achievement.

During the event, the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, Her Honour, Elizabeth Dowdeswell, made note of Zoe’s Silver Duke of Edinburgh pin and spoke with her about the award.  

What an incredible honour, Zoe. Congratulations!
