Adm Richard Gurnon has long been a supporter of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy Parent's Association. Thanking him for helping to further our organizational mission of supporting the cadets and families of MMA is a challenge. Having given this much thought, the MMAPA has chosen to establish a scholarship in Adm Gurnon’s name. The scholarship is intended to honor Adm Gurnon’s steadfast support of the MMAPA and his belief in an affordable education.
Adm Gurnon is a unique individual with a presence. He is well-spoken and well-versed in the elements of completing a task; making it to the finish line, so to speak. Our scholarship recipients will have a presence, as well. We intend to award the MMAPA Adm Gurnon Scholarship to an individual who possesses traits that make him or her a go-to person; someone who is respected by his or her peers. This scholarship is not necessarily need or merit based. We want the recipient to be that cadet who is not only an asset to their class, but an individual who will be remembered by classmates for being a leader and an all-around good person. The scholarship will be awarded to a 1/C cadet prior to the start of their senior year.
The MMAPA asks for your support in helping us to fund this scholarship. Our hope is to award a $1000 scholarship for at least the next four years. Your generosity now will make a big difference to our scholarship recipients in the future. Our fund raising drive is short lived. We have two weeks to reach our goal of $4000. We need your help to make this scholarship a reality. The MMAPA truly believes that an appropriate thank you to Adm Gurnon for his years of support is honoring his passion; the Academy, the cadets and an affordable education.
