Santa Fe High’s NJROTC Executive Officer Dorian Chavez was awarded the Legion of Valor Bronze Cross for Achievement Medal. Cadet LT Chavez, who is a senior this year, was selected in May 2022 as Top Junior of the Year, while serving as cadet chief.
Chief Patricia Schipp explained that each year in May, NJROTC units may submit a nomination for one junior to be considered for selection as a Top Junior of the Year. Out of all of the submissions, 22 are selected from each NJROTC area.
(The award is sent to the unit during the summer, to be awarded to the cadet at the beginning of the next school year.)
In recognition of his outstanding achievement, Cadet LT Chavez was awarded the medal on Sept. 14.
“We are extremely proud of Cadet Chavez and all of his accomplishments,” said Chief Schipp.
