Scholarship Donors to date:

Sponsor a Midshipman! In 2018 we initiated a program where you could purchase a ticket to the dinner for a Midshipman. They would be your guest and sit at your table with you. It was a great experience for these young men and women, and an opportunity for you to show them the ropes with an introduction to our industry. Thank you to the following companies for Sponsoring a Midshipman:

IMC Logistics
National Steel Car Limited
The Port of Virginia
Union Tank Car Company
