Arctic Directory: Crowley provides scholarship to Academy student

Crowley Maritime Corp. said Aug. 29 that it recently awarded a Thomas B. Crowley Sr. Memorial Scholarship to Alaska’s Institute of Technology student Justin Schoening. This career advancing scholarship will give Schoening the opportunity to participate in the school’s Ablebodied Mariner Training Program, which, upon completion, will allow his pursuit of a marine towing career.

Schoening, 36, a Seward, Alaska, native and member of the Qutekcak Native Corp., is no stranger to the maritime industry having already graduated from AVTEC with a U.S. Coast Guard 100-ton Master’s License. Since 2007, he has successfully owned and operated a charter fishing business with his 340-foot vessel, Just In Time, in Resurrection Bay and the North Gulf of Alaska.

Captain Dan Butts of AVTEC presented the scholarship to Schoening who graciously thanked Crowley, and also Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. for their supplemental Alaska Native Scholarship which will enable him to complete this training.

Crowley created this scholarship program to recognize students who demonstrate the achievement and leadership ability to successfully pursue careers in the towing industry. Awardees must be Alaska Natives, hold valid Merchant Mariner Credentials, hold Transportation Worker Identification Cards and provide sea service letters of discharge to demonstrate that the candidate meets the sea service requirements to qualify for an Ablebodied rating upon successful completion of the course.
