Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Glen Paine, President, Maritime Industries Academy Foundation (MIAF) announced that the Steamship Trade Association of  Baltimore Charitable Legacy, Inc. donated $10,000 to the MIAF non-profit charity, which was setup to support Baltimore’s only maritime high school.

 

This maritime charity was founded by Mr. Mark Montgomery, CEO, Ports America Chesapeake, and Mr. Michael Angelos, President, Steamship Trade Association of Baltimore. In a correspondence to Legacy Inc., Glen Paine said, “Since its inception in 2009, the Maritime Industries Academy Advisory Board and Foundation have assisted in the relocation of the MIA and the implementation of a maritime curriculum for ninth grade. It has also helped establish a Junior Naval Officer Training Corps and Honor Guard. The transformation of these young individuals over the last few years has been truly remarkable. They are learning skill sets that will help them achieve success in life.”


The Maritime Industries Academy Foundation, Inc. (MIAF) mission is to continue the process of incorporating maritime oriented information within the curriculum of grades 9-12. By doing so, the students can see real-world application of their subjects. MIAF funding is critical to fulfilling this mission. To learn more about MIAF, you may contact the foundation at 5001 Sinclair Lane, Baltimore, MD 21206.
