Atlantic Marine Donates to Community College Outboard Program

Atlantic Marine recently donated $26,500 to the Cape Fear Community College Foundation, located in Wilmington, North Carolina, to be used for student scholarships. The scholarships will be awarded to students in the Outboard Systems program. Students must complete the Intro to Outboard Systems course and have their instructor’s recommendation to be eligible for a scholarship. Scholarships fund tuition, books, and material fees that are required by the program.

“We are proud to support the Outboard Systems program at CFCC,” said Atlantic Marine president David Floyd. “By supporting this program, CFCC, in turn, is able to support our industry by training well-qualified technicians who are career ready.”

“Community partners like Atlantic Marine help CFCC provide workforce-ready employees for local businesses,” said Jim Morton, CFCC president. “Their ongoing support will benefit so many of our Outboard Systems students. We are grateful for this investment and look forward to seeing our students help meet the needs of the outboard motors and boating industries.”
