Crowley Awards Three United States Merchant Marine Academy Cadets with Scholarships at the Connie Awards Luncheon.
 
 

Continuing in its tradition of supporting academic excellence, Crowley Maritime Corporation awarded Thomas B. Crowley Sr. Memorial Scholarships to three deserving cadets from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA) at Kings Point, N.Y., during Monday's Containerization and Intermodal Institute (Connie Awards) luncheon in Newark, N.J. The USMMA cadets, Benjamin Faulter, Megan Laskowsky, and Noah Niday, were each selected for their strong academic records, interest in pursuing maritime careers and financial need. Sarah Cross, Crowley's marine recruiter, presented the scholarships at a luncheon attended by hundreds of maritime and transportation professionals.
 
 

Faulter, a native of Maine, is studying to become an officer in the Naval Reserve and aspires to work in other sectors of the maritime industry. After graduation, he hopes to sail U.S. Merchant fleet vessels and upgrade his license. Laskowsky, a native of Pennsylvania, is studying marine transportation and is in the top 10 percent of her class academically. She has participated in the Regiment of the Midshipmen as regimental logistics officer, and plans to pursue an inland towing career following graduation.
 
 

Niday, a native of Texas, is currently enrolled in the USMMA Ship Officer Program. He joined the USMMA after being awarded a congressional nomination to the academy. Upon graduation, he will have earned a third mate's license and certification as a Qualified Member of the Engine Department.  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. The company has also donated more than $2 million over the years to support other educational programs.
 
 

In 1994, Crowley Chairman, President and CEO, Tom Crowley Jr., established the Thomas B. Crowley Sr. Memorial Scholarship Program, in honor of his father, who guided the company to extraordinary heights before passing away in 1994. The company continues to give scholarship dollars to deserving students in the U.S., Alaska and Puerto Rico. In 2006, the program expanded to Central America and to date has provided financial assistance to 25 students in that region.
