Wall of Honor

History

In 1997 Maine Maritime Academy created a Wall of Honor to recognize alumni who, through their achievements in professional and civic life, have brought honor to themselves and the Academy. This Wall was established not only to recognize and honor those alumni for their achievements, but also to allow their accomplishments to serve as inspiration to students and alumni, current and future, to strive for excellence.
