WESTIN HOTEL • NATIONAL HARBOR, MD

Cocktail Reception 5:30 – 7:00 pm • Dinner, Awards to Honorees and Keynote 7:00 – 9:30 pm

We will honor two individuals for lifetime contributions to the U.S. Maritime (or related industries) in the areas of education or community service:

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

Special Guest Speaker: The U.S. Maritime Administrator, The Honorable Mark H. Buzby (Rear Admiral USN retired)

Our menu will include the following dinner choices:

  • Filet Oscar or Pan Seared Red Snapper, both paired with asparagus and rosemary mashed potatoes
  • House salad with champagne vinaigrette
  • Cheesecake with berry compote
  • Choice of red or white wine with dinner

The money given so generously to the Trust directly funds a maritime scholarship program that supports students of all ages and backgrounds pursuing a maritime career.

The Captain Richard Phillips and Lane Kirkland Maritime Trust welcomes you to this fun evening with overwhelming appreciation for your financial generosity and time. Help us recognize the best of what was, what is, and what might be, across the waterfront and aboard all types of vessels.
