“I am honored to receive the Bouchard Transportation Scholarship this year and excited to get back on a tug and barge unit after graduation. MMA has given me the tools to build my career in the maritime industry and with the expanding tug and barge fleets, I feel I am ready to take part and make a positive impact on transporting goods on the waterways of the United States. Thank you to the Bouchard family for recognizing me as a recipient this year!”
