Two students from the Southold-Mattituck-Greenport Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps, known as NJROTC, have been selected as this year’s top cadets by the New York State Department of the American Legion. 

Major William Grigonis, who heads the three-school unit, said 2014 marks the sixth time out of the past nine years that his students have earned the state award.

His daughter, Cadet Commander Jamie Grigonis from Southold High School, finished first place overall and will be invited to the Legion’s annual parade and dinner event in Albany this July to receive a certificate and a $1,000 scholarship. Cadet Lieutenant Commander Dory Lieblein from Greenport High School earned second place overall, he said.
