Andrew Harville, a recent graduate of the Webb Institute in New York, was awarded the 2009 Lloyd's Register Education Trust Maritime Technology Student of the Year Award.

The annual award, sponsored by the Lloyd's Trust and the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers, highlights excellence while encouraging students to showcase their research and investigative studies in the areas of naval architecture, and marine and ocean engineering, as well as promoting leadership in the industry.

It was presented to Harville at the SNAME 2009 President's Luncheon, held during the recent SNAME 2009 Annual Meeting and Expo in Providence, R.I.

Harville, a 2009 Webb graduate, is now a naval architect with Waller Marine in Spring, Texas. He was awarded the $3,500 first prize for his paper, "Politician Promises: A Study in Advancing a Green Staten Island (N.Y.) Ferry System."

Next year, the award will be renamed the Lloyd's Register Educational Trust America's Maritime Student of the Year, and the competition will be expanded to include students from Central America and South America.
