James Centorino Award
This award was named in the memory of Jim Centorino, an inspirational and passionate marine educator who taught at Salem State College, co-founded the Massachusetts Marine Educators and later the National Marine Education Association. In the mid 80s Jim died from cancer. He continues to be remembered by students and colleagues. Through this award, we at NMEA continue to remember his contributions to marine education.
This award is given for distinguished performance in marine education by professionals who are not classroom teachers. Only NMEA members are eligible. Participation in NMEA is an important consideration.
The Awards Committee considers a candidate’s major contributions, including outstanding leadership, programs developed, and participation in marine education organizations, over a five year period.
The recipient receives a one-year NMEA membership.
