Crowley Maritime Honored with Award for Charitable Efforts from SUNY Maritime College; Award Recognizes Crowley’s Continued Commitment to Education.
 
Crowley Maritime Corporation was recently honored for its charitable efforts with an award from the State University of New York (SUNY) Maritime College that recognized the company’s continued dedication to supporting SUNY students with scholarships, internship programs and career opportunities through the years. Crowley President, Chairman and CEO Tom Crowley Jr. accepted the award from SUNY Maritime College President Rear Admiral Wendi B. Carpenter, USN (Ret.), during the college’s annual Admiral’s Scholarship Dinner, held on the Throggs Neck campus in New York, earlier this month.


“Tom Crowley has built on a tremendous legacy that his father began by supporting scholarships and educational programs for our students.  For that and all that he does, we salute him,” said Carpenter. “I’m honored to receive this recognition on behalf of Crowley Maritime,” said Crowley. “When my father took the helm from my grandfather, he not only inherited the generationally strong vision we each share for the direction of the company, but he also sought to provide striving students with opportunities to reach their goals through education. This award is testament to his mission and our company’s continued commitment to giving back.”


Since 1984, Crowley has provided more than half-a-million dollars in scholarship funding for more than 200 students studying at maritime academies and other select institutions in the U.S., Alaska, Puerto Rico and Central America. In 1994, Crowley established the Thomas B. Crowley Sr. Memorial Scholarship Program in honor of his father, and has also donated more than $2 million over the years to support other educational programs.
Shell International Trading and Shipping Company Limited (Shell Trading and Shipping) and SUNY Maritime College graduate Richard De Simone ’79 (M.S.), XL Insurance North America Marine, were also honored at the event.
