Cadet L-Sgt Esther Boadu, who attends Haverstock School, in Haverstock Hill, Chalk Farm, received the prestigious Deputy Lieutenant Award for her work with the 213 Haverstock School Army Cadet Detachment (Grenadier Guards).
As an army cadet, Esther learns navigation skills, trains for shooting competitions, takes part in field training exercises and volunteers in the community.
