2nd year BCIT Engineering Cadet Karn Chema has just returned from sea time with Algoma and was able to collect his certificate for being one of our successful Fall bursary recipients. Presenting the award to Karn is NPESC secretary/treasurer Captain Joachim Ruether. The presentation was made at the Sailors’ Point memorial adjacent to the BCIT Marine Campus in North Vancouver.
This year’s BCIT First Year Achievement Bursary award was made to Cadet Havill Leitch by Captains Joachim Ruether and David Whittaker (left) on November 1st.
The three are joined by cadets Justin Bury, Alexander Holiove and Nicola Zimny and Captain Philip McCarter.
It was with great pleasure that Richard Smith attended at the Marine Campus of BCIT in North Vancouver, as a director of the BC Branch of The Nautical Institute, on June 16th to make a presentation to 3rd year Deck Cadet Jeremy Botel.
Jeremy is one of three recipients of Vancouver Transportation Foundation (VTF) Scholarships in 2016.
These scholarships are vetted and awarded by the BC Branch of The Nautical Institute on behalf of the VTF. In addition to this award Jeremy was also offered a complimentary year of membership in The Nautical Institute.
Our congratulations to Jeremy and thanks to the students and staff at the campus for permitting us the opportunity to make this presentation.
