Mass Maritime bids farewell to Seniors and Dean of Students


Two significant events occurred on Saturday: The Massachusetts Maritime Academy held its graduation ceremony for the Class of 2019 and Dean of Students Commodore Bradley Lima retired after many years.

While the academy’s strict protocols are still in effect, change has been in the works. Diversity is welcomed, more women cadets are applying, curriculum is growing, there is a new small-craft marina, and technology is constantly changing.

His successor is retired Coast Guard Captain Brigid Pavilonis, who will become the provost of the academy.
