The Royal Life Saving Society awards service medals each year, to a person who has at least five years experience as a volunteer officer or committee member. The person must have also performed a note worthy service.
Collen Scott of Rosetown was the recipient of the service medal, "It's pretty amazing, especially because they have a group of people here in Saskatchewan that pick people they want to recommend. Then it goes over to England to the Royal Lifesaving Society there and is signed off by Prince Micheal of Kent. It's an amazing honour to receive this."
Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan on behalf of the Commonwealth President Prince Michael of Kent.The medal was awarded to Scott in November 2018 by the Honorable Thomas Molloy,
Scott has had years of experience as a National Lifeguard Instructor, Life Saving Instructor Trainer and teaching first aid. "I travel around, Rosetown, Elrose an other places in Saskatchewan, helping teach people to get their qualifications."
Scott explained how she started working and volunteering as a part of the Life Saving Society, "As a kid we had a cabin so it was mandatory that we took swimming lessons at the lake and pool. Eventually, it was a great job and easy way to earn money during school. And then I just fell in love with it and kept up my certifications."
