Great Lakes Maritime Academy Pays Tribute To Mariners


TRAVERSE CITY — Great Lakes Maritime Academy will hold its 43rd annual Mariners Memorial Service on November 9 on the Great Lakes Campus of Northwestern Michigan College.

The service pays tribute to those lost on the Edmund Fitzgerald, which sank in 1975, in addition to others who have lost their lives on the Great Lakes and oceans.

The Academy has grown dramatically over the past 50 years, such as an increase in the types of degrees offered, different training vessels, and an improvement in the land-based facilities. Cadets also learn in the classroom and on the water.
