New Jersey trade group hands out scholarships

The Marine Trades Association of New Jersey Foundation awarded two scholarships to students pursuing careers in the marine industry.

This is the sixth year that the association has been able to award scholarships to deserving students.

The $1,500 MTA/NJ scholarship was awarded to Kevin Chapman of West Long Branch. Chapman is graduating from Shore Regional High School in West Long Branch and he plans to further his marine education at the Automotive Training Center in Warminster, Pa., in the marine technician program.

The MTA/NJ also awarded an outstanding student award for the purchase of tools for the trade to Josh Healey of Ocean County Vocational-Technical School.

“We are very pleased to be able to award education scholarships to these deserving individuals that have demonstrated their dedication to the future of the marine trades industry. They have all worked very hard to pursue their goals, and we wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors,” MTA/NJ executive director Melissa Danko said in a statement.
