Eight individuals affiliated with Niagara University’s ROTC program, including six cadets, spent a week in June assisting the American Legion Boys State program at SUNY Morrisville.

Cadets Jake Cary (of Victory, N.Y.), Brandon Forjone (Clifton Spring, N.Y.), Kyle Gelnett (Cleveland, N.Y.), Aaron McCarroll (Sidney, N.Y.), Jacob Streb (York, N.Y.) and Trevor Wilson (Tonawanda, N.Y.) served as assistant county counselors, mentoring the county’s 90 citizens.
