The National Marine Representatives Association said it awarded a second $500 scholarship to a student who is pursuing an education in the marine industry and maritime trades.

Jacqueline Weymann, of Kings Point, N.Y., was honored in a presentation made by NMRA past president and ComMar Sales vice president Norm MacLeod.

Originally from San Diego, Weymann is a midshipman at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and is pursuing a bachelor's degree in intermodal transportation and logistics. She expects to graduate next June.

Weymann plans to use the $500 to further her education by taking coursework in dynamic positioning, which will help her obtain a position sailing on her third mate's unlimited license aboard multipurpose service and offshore supply vessels in the Gulf of Mexico.

"I am grateful to know that there are members of the maritime community that are encouraging and supportive of maritime cadets,” Weymann said in a statement.

The NMRA said in October that it awarded a scholarship to Noah Luff, of Ventura, Calif., who is studying marine transportation at the California Maritime Academy.
