The Captain Richard Phillips Lane Kirkland Maritime Trust has opened registration for its 2019 Washington, D.C. Fall Gala and Scholarship Fundraising Event, which will be held on November 4 and the Westin Washington National Harbor. Funds contributed to the Trust directly support a maritime scholarship program that supports students of all ages and backgrounds pursuing a maritime career.

This year, the Trust will honor two individuals for their lifetime contributions to the U.S. maritime industry in the areas of education or community service:

Captain Steve Werse (SUMC)
1st Engineer Jay Corcoran (MASS)

U.S. Maritime Administrator Rear Adm. Mark H. Buzby (USN, ret'd) will be the event's special guest speaker.
