Crowley Maritime Corporation presented U.S. Merchant Marine Academy Midshipman Kevin Kinsella with the Maritime Security Enhancement Award, during the academy's graduation awards convocation. 

 

Charles Hill, chairman of the academy's alumni foundation, presented the recognition certificate and cash award on behalf of Crowley to Kinsella. Each year, Crowley recognizes a student at USMMA who demonstrates a strong interest in a career in port, maritime or transportation security.

Kinsella, a native of Allentown, Pa., majored in logistics and intermodal transportation and served as the 1st Batallion executive officer, responsible for the day-to-day workings of the battalion. During his time at the academy, Kinsella was also president and captain of the Kings Point rugby football club and a member of the emergency medical service squad, where he earned an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) certification. Kinsella graduated with a 3.28 grade-point average (GPA).

After graduation, Kinsella will take a commission as an ensign in the U.S. Coast Guard and will be assigned to the cutter Waesche, the newest of the high-endurance national security cutters.

"We are proud to present Crowley's Maritime Security Enhancement Award to such a deserving and dedicated student," said Ed Alford, Crowley's security director. "Midshipman Kinsella has displayed high standards in academics, athletics and leadership while at Kings Point. These qualities will serve him well, as he begins his military active duty and maritime security career with the U.S. Coast Guard. Promoting the development of future industry leaders through this award is illustrative of  Crowley's commitment to world class safety and maritime security programs and to the protection of personnel, vessels, facilities, ports and the environment."

The award is part of Crowley's lengthy and ongoing commitment to education. Over the years, Crowley Chairman, President and CEO, Tom Crowley Jr., has directed the company to recognize deserving students at the maritime academies and other select institutions in the U.S., Caribbean and Central America with awards and scholarships in the name of his father Thomas B. Crowley Sr., who guided the company to extraordinary heights before passing away in 1994.
