Crowley has awarded cadets Nicholas Sobkow and Amber Card from Maine Maritime Academy with Thomas B. Crowley Sr. Memorial Scholarships.
The students were honored based on their service during cadet shipping terms aboard a Crowley owned or managed vessel and their interest in pursuing a career at sea.
Amber Card, of Bowdoin, Maine, is a junior majoring in marine engineering technology. In spring 2023, she will graduate with a U.S. Coast Guard Unlimited Horsepower Third Engineer’s License. This past summer, she completed her cadet shipping requirements aboard the M/V El Coqui combination container/roll-on roll-off ship.
Nicholas Sobkow, a senior from Absecon, N.J., is studying marine transportation operations and pursuing a Third Mate Unlimited Tonnage License. Sobkow sailed as a cadet on the Crowley-managed tanker MT Palmetto State. In addition to his maritime studies, Sobkow is president of the class of 2022 and a navigation lab tutor.
Crowley has funded more than 1,000 students studying at maritime academies and other select schools in the continental United States, Puerto Rico and Central America.
The Thomas B. Crowley Sr. Memorial Scholarship program was established in 1994 by his son, Crowley CEO and chairman, Thomas B. Crowley Jr. to honor his father’s instrumental leadership and accomplishments for the company and maritime industry.
