Massachusetts Marine Trades Educational Trust hands out scholarships

The Massachusetts Marine Trades Educational Trust announced the recipients of its Technical Training Awards program.

The program was established this year in collaboration with a $1,500 scholarship award received from the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas Educational Trust.

As part of the requirement for the Educational Trust award, MMTET had to match the MRAA’s $1,500 and award the scholarship funds to Massachusetts Marine Trades Association members.

The MMTET added $2,000 to MRAA’s $1,500 so it could offer vice members $1,000 each.

The award winners:

  • Diesel Smith of Dennis Port, Mass.
  • Goose Hummock Shops of Orleans, Mass.
  • Manchester Marine Corp. of Manchester, Mass.
  • Parker’s Boat Yard of Cataumet, Mass.
  • SK Marine Electronics of New Bedford, Mass.
