Alexander Scott Earns an award!

 

We have a crew member that has achieved a fantastic award!

The Congressional Award is U.S. Congress’ only charity and the highest honor bestowed upon a young person through the Senate and House. Established by Congress as a public private partnership in 1979 under Public Law 96-114, the program encourages and recognizes initiative, service, and achievement in youth ages 14-23.

 Alexander started this endeavor at age 15 aboard the S.S. Lane Victory.  Now 21 years old, the Lane Victory has been the recipient of over 2500 hours of service by this young man.

Here you can read about the event is detail as presented on the Congressional site, and here you can read about the program itself.

Guys and gals, this is no minor accomplishment, and we should all be very proud of Alexander!!!
