The National Marine Representatives Association recently awarded a $1,500 scholarship to a student pursuing education related to the maritime trades.

Tia Esposito of Harbor Springs, Mich., was presented the scholarship by NMRA full member Charlie Mckenzie of Camdenton, Mo.-based Midwest Outdoor Marketing.

Esposito has grown up in the boat business, spending summers working at her father's full service boatyard and marina.

"Over the years, I've been in a number of positions, including store employee, service worker, valet, and now head of the valet department,” Esposito said in a statement. The previous summer, she supervised four employees who cared for 26 customers' boats.

With an eye towards entering the field of logistics, Esposito attends the University of Michigan where she is majoring in organizational studies. Her goal is to graduate with as little student debt as possible.
