NEWS Wall of Honor was created to recognize alumni, who, through achievements in professional and civic life, have brought honor to themselves and to Maine Maritime Academy. Inductees are selected from nominations made at large by alumni and the public. The annual selection process is carried out by a committee comprised of members of the Wall of Honor. The 2006 Maine Maritime Academy Wall of Honor induction ceremony recognized the career accomplishments of Samuel J. Collins of Downington, Pa.: Capt. Deborah Doane Dempsey, of Bellingham, Wash.; and Capt. Stephen W. Dick, of Richmond, Texas. Samuel J. Collins, MMA Class of 1971 and the Regional Administrator of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for the Northeast Region (Region I), King of Prussia, Pa., was cited for his outstanding contributions to the management and oversight of nuclear energy. Capt. Deborah Doane Dempsey, MMA Class of 1976 and a Colombia River Bar Pilot, was cited by the college for her distinguished seafaring career and for her pioneering role in the maritime industry as a professionally licensed woman merchant mariner. Dempsey graduated from Maine Maritime Academy as valedictorian of her class and as the first female graduate of any maritime or service academy in the United States. Capt. Stephen W. Dick, MMA Class of 1971 and the Executive Vice President of Tidewater, Inc., was recognized for his significant professional contributions to the offshore marine services industry. As a career manager and senior executive for Tidewater, Inc., Dick has served in key positions, both domestically and internationally, contributing to the growth and success of the company. Dick graduated from Maine Maritime Academy with a Third Mate's and received a Naval Reserve Commission as an Ensign in the U.S. Navy. The 2006 inductees join 48 distinguished alumni honorees with a framed photograph and biographical sketch permanently displayed in the college's Wall of Honor located in the Kresge Room of the Harold Alfond Student Center. The display serves to pay tribute to those alumni inductees for their achievement, but also to allow their accomplishments to serve as inspiration to current students and fellow alumni to strive for excellence.

Horizon Marine Supports Rig Tow to Brazil After 5,500 nautical miles and 64 days at sea, the semi-submersible drilling unit Noble Therald Martin arrived in Macae, Brazil. Horizon Marine assisted the routing of the rig prior to its departure and while underway. Horizon Marine's Eddy Watch -- Gulf of Mexico and Eddy Watch Trinidad/Venezuela reports were issued to the tow vessels John P. Laborde and Maersk Master and used with great effect. Traditionally Horizon Marine has focused north of the equator, but with the analysis and interpretation of satellite imagery and NOAA drifting GPS buoys, the route south of the equator was charted for and journeyed by the Noble Therald Martin without any surprises. As operations move further offshore into deeper water and assets are moved between oil fields, Horizon Marine's `Eddy Watch' and `Rig Watch' programs are becoming an essential service to the oil industry.
