William Armstrong Scholarship Award was established initially
for High School Seniors who were pursuing an education of
higher learning with the intent of entering the recreational
marine field, or has already obtained a position in the filed
and requires funding for tools or the like. It now also applies
to employees costs for basic marine courses such as offered
through MMTA at Massasoit or Mass. Maritime Academy.
This past year the Grant was increased to a maximum of $1,500
to better reflect current costs.
One recent award was given to Arthur Ross for $250 – the cost
of the basic boating course he took at Massasoit. He's presently
employed at Marina Bay.
For 2003, the following awards were announced:
Scott Stevens—$1,500 scholarship to NEIT
Daniel Green—$1,500 scholarship to NEIT
Edward Peters—$1,500 scholarship to NEIT
