Crowley Awards Memorial Scholarship to Maine Maritime Academy Cadets

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.

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.

Amber Card, of Bowdoin, Maine, is a junior majoring in marine engineering technology. In spring 2023, Card will graduate with a U.S. Coast Guard Unlimited Horsepower Third Engineer’s License. This past summer, Card completed her cadet shipping requirements aboard the M/V El Coqui combination container/roll-on roll-off “ConRo” ship
