The Marina Industries Association announced the winners of two scholarships for advanced marina management and intermediate marina management courses that will be held in Sydney and the Gold Coast in Australia.

The courses are conducted annually by the MIA and recognized internationally through the Global Marina Institute.

The winner of the Bellingham Marine advanced marina management scholarship is Juanita Erskine. She has been in the marina industry for 12 years and harbormaster at Hope Harbour Marina on the Gold Coast since 2013.

John Spragg of Bellingham said the education of young people in the industry is essential.

“Bellingham Marine places great importance on supporting industry education as a way to strengthen the long-term health of the industry,” he said in a statement.

The winner of the Superior Jetties intermediate marina management course is Eileen Rawlinson of d’Albora Marinas. Rawlinson is front-office manager at d’Albora Marinas Akuna Bay in Sydney, where she has been working since 2012.

“Completing the course will be an important step in furthering my education, and the skills and knowledge learned in the course will help equip me for the challenges ahead,” Rawlinson said.

“Industry education is a core focus of the MIA,” association president Andrew Chapman said. “These keenly contested scholarships are valuable in attracting more interest and participation in MIA courses.”
