Senator Malone Sails with Students

Roseway welcomed a special guest on board this afternoon along with the 31 sixth-graders from Claude O. Markoe Elementary School. Senator Shawn-Michael Malone hopped on board to join the kids this afternoon as they sailed out from Gallows Bay to continue the lessons they've been working on all week. Senator Malone has been a strong advocate for maritime education and career development so was eager to see what Roseway's program was all about.

Awaiting the ship on the dock when we returned was a reporter from a local radio station wanting to hear what the senator thought of his expereince. He had all great things to report and promised he'd be back. We were honored that he came over from St. Thomas to spend the afternoon with us and the kids thought is was really cool.

Thus ends another week of education on the high seas!
