The National Marine Representatives Association presented a $500 scholarship to Lennard Noller, of Hillsboro, Ore., as an outstanding student pursuing an education in the marine trades.

Noller is attending the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding in Port Hadlock, Wash., with an emphasis on traditional large craft. The school teaches boatbuilding skills and develops the individual as a craftsman to enter the workforce as a boatwright.

Noller has a deep connection with his chosen building material.

"Wood is an incredible resource, both for its durability and sustainability," he said in a statement. "I believe its relationship with the maritime industry will continue to grow over the period of my life."

Noller spent three years out of high school sailing tall ships, traveling the world and working on boat restoration projects in the Netherlands and Pacific Northwest as a rigger.

He used the award to purchase some of the tools required to complete his studies.
