ABYC Foundation Seeks Nominations for Educator Award


The ABYC Foundation said it is accepting nominations for its Educator of the Year Award through Sept. 21. Nominees must be currently teaching marine service technology in a high school, post-secondary school or corporate setting.


“There are more than 16,000 marine technician positions currently open in the U.S., and the ABYC Foundation is working to support marine-service teachers who are critical to on-board quality marine employees of the future,” ABYC Foundation executive director Margaret Podlich said in a statement.

Last year’s winner, Stephen Spencer from Palm Beach State College in Lake Worth, Fla., along with two runners-up, will speak at the ABYC Foundation Educator Training Conference, to be held virtually July 20-22.
