The National Marine Representatives Association presented its second 2016 scholarship of $1,500 to Lane Peterson.

The annual award is given to an outstanding student pursuing education in the marine trades. Peterson is a yacht design and boatbuilding student at The Landing School in Arundel, Maine.

Growing up in Arizona, 7,000 feet above sea level, he learned woodworking while making model boats and developed a lifelong love of serving others through his faith.

"With a high demand for qualified builders, designers and technicians, I have confidence that there's a place for me and my skill in the boating industry,” Peterson said in a statement.

He has an expected graduation date of June 2017 and is in conversation with numerous notable boatbuilders across the country.
