The St Stephen’s School class of 2014 graduate and scout of 13 years was presented with the award at an official ceremony at Government House.
‘I’m very proud to accept this honour,’ Daniel said.
‘I started in scouts when I was six years old so this award represents lots of hard work.’
Daniel follows in his father’s footsteps as a Queen’s Scout. It is the youth organisation’s highest award and is earned by only a few recipients each year.
‘The best thing I enjoy about scouts is the friendships and community involvement,’ Daniel said.
St Stephen’s School deputy head of secondary and former scout Justin Beckett congratulated Daniel for his service.
‘We would like to extend our congratulations to Daniel on joining an elite group of young people,’ he said.
‘This award speaks volumes of who he is as a person and we encourage our students to serve one another and the community.’
