California Maritime Academy (CMA) Cadet David Hoyt granted Crowley Maritime Corporation’s Thomas B. Crowley Sr. Memorial Scholarship.

The award was presented to Hoyt by Crowley’s Victoria Ellis, administrator, marine personnel, during the 2012 Containerization and Intermodal Institute (Connie Awards) dinner held earlier this month in Long Beach, Calif. Hoyt was selected for the scholarship based on his strong academic record, financial need and interest in pursuing a maritime career.

Hoyt, who was born in Park Ridge, Ill., and raised in San Francisco, developed his longtime love for the ocean at a young age while attending sailing lessons in summer camp, and it eventually evolved from a hobby to a career path. He is currently majoring in marine transportation with a minor in business administration.

"I am proud to receive the recognition and support of an industry leader such as Crowley, and especially so, as an aspiring merchant mariner who grew up in San Francisco, to share in the local origins of such respected maritime legends as the Crowley family and company," said Hoyt.

This past summer, Hoyt completed an internship where he worked aboard tugboats in San Francisco Bay undertaking bunkering operations, and as a result now hopes to work as a mate onboard an oceangoing or coastwise tug after graduation.

Hoyt is one of more than 200 students from CMA and other maritime academies and select institutions throughout the country to receive a Crowley scholarship since 1984. Crowley has also donated more than $2 million over the years to support other educational programs.
