SUNY Maritime College Honors Adm. Miller; Appoints Piccirillo

Hailed as a Rickover nuclear navy pioneer who now "has earned the role of national legislative spokesman for the nation's six state maritime colleges," the president of SUNY Maritime College, Rear Admiral Floyd H. Miller, USN (Ret ), was honored by the Maritime College Alumni Association.

Adm. Miller, a 1953 alumnus of the SUNY Maritime College, received the college alumni association's highest honor, its annual distinguished alumnus award, at a luncheon at the Whitehall Club at Battery Park in Manhattan March 10. SUNY Maritime College has also appointed a new development officer. Nanette Piccirillo, a former aide to Sen. Earnest F. Hollings of South Carolina, has been appointed development officer at the SUNY Maritime College at Fort Schuyler in Throgs Neck, N.Y. Rear Adm. Miller said Ms.

Piccirillo's appointment will aid final fundraising for completion of the College's Center for Simulated Marine Operations.

The simulator center already has nine different simulator units. The center and a pierside training tanker complete with a half dozen tank level indication systems make the Maritime College one of the most advanced simulator training centers, one used widely by the maritime industry.
