Former Miss Kelowna earns gold


Breanne Cleland, Miss Kelowna 2010, was awarded The Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award at the Government House in Victoria by Prince Andrew, the Duke of York on May 18.

The Duke of Edinburgh program is a self-initiated leadership program that encourages youth to become active and contributing members of the community while developing their personal interests and skills. 


Founded in 1956 by His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, the Award runs in over 140 countries.  To complete the Gold Award, Breanne was required to demonstrate personal discovery, growth, self-reliance, perseverance, and responsibility as she fulfilled the Award criteria. 


During the 18 month program, Breanne excelled in the areas of community service, engaged in regular physical activity through team and individual sports, collaborated with a team to work on a residential building project in Zambia, mastered skills in quilting and sewing, and planned and executed an adventurous backpacking journey through Banff National park. 

Breanne is currently entering her final year of a Bachelor of Science in Nursing at UBCO, with the anticipation of caring for others both home and abroad in third world countries.
