Crowley Donates $250K to Webb

Tuesday, October 30, 2007
Crowley Maritime Corporation presented a $250,000 check Monday to the Webb Institute, a college of naval architecture and marine engineering in Glen Cove, N.Y., to establish a leadership program in the name of former Crowley employee Marty Johnson, class of '88, who passed away last year while on company assignment.

The donation which was formally presented by Crowley's Ed Schlueter, vice president vessel management services, will allow the Webb Institute to fund what it's calling the Marty Johnson '88 Leadership Program. The college will obtain a professional evaluation of its current leadership programs in order to identify areas for enhancement to further position Webb Institute as an authority in producing leading naval architecture and marine engineering professionals.

"We have experienced the talent that has been developed by the Webb Institute," said Schlueter. "Marty Johnson was one such talent that made a permanent impression on all of us at Crowley who had the pleasure of working with him. We hope that this donation will not only preserve Marty's memory but will also lay a foundation for those students like him currently enrolled so that they too may excel upon their graduation."

To further its leadership commitment to Webb, Crowley is funding the Thomas B. Crowley, Sr. Memorial Scholarship Program. This scholarship will award one to two juniors or seniors annually with a total of $10,000. Scholarship recipients will be chosen based on their leadership qualities, school and community involvement, interest in and dedication to the maritime industry and academic promise.

"This gift is a wonderful and exciting opportunity for Webb and its students," said RADM Robert Olsen, USCG (Ret.), president of Webb Institute. "Our graduates have always been successful and sought after, but it is clear that there is significant room for improvement in preparing them for the increasing leadership challenges in the workplace."
