LANDINGS SCHOOL STUDENT WINS SCHOLARSHIP

The National Marine Representatives Association (NMRA) presented its second 2016 scholarship of $1,500 to Lane Peterson. The annual award is given to an outstanding student pursuing education in the marine trades.

Peterson is a yacht design and boatbuilding student at The Landings School in Arundel, Maine. Growing up in Arizona, 7,000 feet above sea level, he learned woodworking while making model boats and developed a lifelong love of serving others through his faith. Active in his new community, he's known as "Noah, the shipbuilder of the desert."

The Landings School was a natural choice for Peterson. It offered the subject areas that interested him, and the high likelihood for career success. "With a high demand for qualified builders, designers and technicians," he said, "I have confidence that there's a place for me and my skill in the boating industry." With an expected graduation date of June, 2017, he is currently in conversation with numerous notable boatbuilders across the country.
