Another Riverhead High School NJROTC cadet is heading off to college on a huge scholarship from a U.S. Armed Forces branch, school officials announced Monday.
Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps Cadet Edward Steven Krusczon has been nominated for an Air Force ROTC scholarship of up to $180,000 (depending on the cost of the school) and will be speaking in uniform at a press event this afternoon, officials said.
He’s planning to attend Norwich University in Northfield, Vt.
School officials described the recent award as the same scholarship, just through a different branch of the military.
“This is the highest number of ROTC scholarships awarded in one year in the history of the program,” school officials said in a press release.
