Richard Gray portraitWomen on the Water (WoW) Student Club wishes to thank the NMC Community and the Great Lakes Maritime Academy alumni for their generous support of the bottle and can drive fundraiser in support of Richard Gray. The drive began in February and concluded in early April. WoW collected nearly $380, and “rounded up” the amount to donate a total of $400.00.

American Steamship Company (ASC) established a Trust to provide for future expenses for Richard Gray’s children’s education and extraordinary medical costs, if any. Richard was a valued employee of ASC and a dedicated alumni of Great Lakes Maritime Academy. He lost his life in a tragic accident on January 17, 2022 leaving behind an expectant wife and three young children.
