Crowley Presents Maritime Security Enhancement Award

Wednesday, August 08, 2007
Continuing its support of students wishing to enter maritime, transportation and logistics fields, Crowley Maritime Corporation recently presented Tyler A. Stutin, a U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA) midshipmen, with the Crowley Maritime Security Enhancement Award.

Vic Goldberg, Crowley vice president of marine operations, recognized Stutin, during the 2007 Academic Awards Convocation at Kings Point in June. Candidates for this award must demonstrate exceptional interest in and aptitude for, a career in port, maritime or transportation security. Stutin, a logistics and intermodal transportation major, hails from Pasadena, Calif., and was the senior class president and the aide to the Academy's Deputy Superintendent, Rear Admiral Christopher McMahon, USMS. In February 2005, Stutin was presented with the U.S. Maritime Service Professional Achievement Medal by the U.S. Maritime Administrator for saving a life at sea. In October 2006, he completed and presented an independent study for the Department of Defense Threat Reduction Agency on the vulnerability of U.S. ports to terrorist sea mining. And last December, Crowley presented Stutin with a Thomas B. Crowley Sr. Memorial Scholarship. Stutin plans to pursue a career in the maritime industry and to one day enter the field of admiralty law.

Earlier this year, the company hired 21 graduating seniors from the 2007 spring graduating classes of the nation's merchant marine academies. The surge in academy new-hires is part of Crowley's re-energized recruiting program designed to help address crewing shortages currently facing the maritime industry. These newly hired graduates are being given a comprehensive, training program intended to provide them an introduction to the basics of towing along with insight into Crowley's procedures and safety culture.
