FOR MMA CADETS, HARD WORK PAYS OFF IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE
Massachusetts Maritime Academy cadets work extremely hard during their academic career and are required to juggle much more than the average college student. Fortunately for MMA cadets, hard work really does pay off! All graduating seniors leave MMA with a valuable degree and incredible career opportunities on the horizon, but some will leave with even more. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, including alumni, parents, friends and corporate partners, some students will receive a commencement award during the graduation ceremony. These awards are given to recognize significant accomplishment in areas such as the following: highest academic achievement in each major, most improved in class standings, leadership contributions, most practical abilities, exemplary character and potential to lead, excellence in Naval Science, exemplary citizenship, excellence in engineering, best exemplifies the spirit of MMA…and this is just to name a few.
We thank our donors for their generosity and their commitment to MMA cadets as we congratulate the Class of 2015 and wish them “Fair Winds and Full Sails!”
