Dayman receives his medal

Comments

Estevan resident Jayden Dayman holds the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal that he recently received.

Estevan resident Jayden Dayman has been presented with a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal, in recognition of his service to the community through the Estevan Relay for Life, and other organizations.

Dayman, a Grade 12 student at the Estevan Comprehensive School, was one of 41 recipients at a ceremony in Regina in late September. He was also one of the youngest people to receive a medal.

He was been active in the Relay, and the Mini Relay for Life that is held in local schools, for the past four years. He is currently a board member for the Canadian Cancer Society’s (CCS) Southeast Unit, making him the youngest CCS board member in Canada.

Dayman said that the jubilee ceremony was a surreal experience, since he was in a room with decorated people who have received the Order of Canada or the Saskatchewan Order of Merit.

“To be recognized with them was unreal,” said Dayman. “I never thought it would happen.”

It was interesting to hear all the different things that people have done to contribute to the province, he said. Three other young people were presented with medals at the ceremony.

Dayman said he has often been told that he’s too young to make a difference, and he is always proud when he sees other young people serving their community.
