The Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering- Atlantic Branch is pleased to announce that this year’s student recipient of the Atlantic Award is Tiffany O’Donnell. The one thousand dollar ($1,000) annual award is presented to deserving students attending the NSCC Nautical Institute at Port Hawkesbury NS. The award challenges students in their final year of study, who best demonstrate scholastic achievement, mechanical aptitude and extraordinary leadership skills. Congratulation Tiffany!

In her words, “This award will surely help me financially as I have student debt for the first time. It was a difficult decision to leave my corporate job and steady paycheck every two weeks but with bursaries like this, it helps leaps and bounds. Awards like this not only help financially but they are so motivating to keep going and keep giving it my all. This program is a huge time commitment and sometimes it can be overwhelming but being recognized and awarded for my efforts makes this all worth it. Times like these, with all the negative news in the world, some positive news is very welcomed.” – Tiffany
