Lake Hopatcong, N.J. - Bridge Marina awarded its 2018 “Bridge Marina Scholarship” to Lawrence Hsieh at its Labor Day event earlier this month.  For the past 12 years, Bridge Marina has awarded a monetary scholarship to one of its staff members in recognition of his or her outstanding performance, attitude and commitment to customer service.  The award winner selection is based partially on feedback from Bridge Marina dock slip and boating club members as well.

Hsieh has been a member of the Bridge Marina team for two seasons. Most guests at Bridge Marina will find him in the marina’s office, or on the fuel dock helping boaters land their craft at the dock.  Hsieh can also be found helping Boating Club and boat rental guests enjoy their experience. About his work at Bridge Marina, Hsieh said, “I really enjoy seeing how much our clients, from experienced boaters to first timers, enjoy themselves on the water with family and friends. Lots of time and effort goes into getting boats ready for the season, tons of hard work from our amazing team, but seeing boaters really be present on the water, away from work and stress, just enjoying themselves on a boat is rewarding. It’s crazy what experiences can come from just boating.”

About choosing Hsieh for the award, Ray Fernandez, owner of Bridge Marina, said “Choosing just one of our team members to receive this award is always a challenge; we have a great team every season.  However, I’m really proud this year to present the award to Lawrence, who has epitomized hard work, perseverance, and flexibility.  He truly does an incredible job.”

Hsieh, 21, is a 2015 graduate of Randolph High School and currently lives in Hackettstown, N.J.  During his time away from the marina, he enjoys traveling, sightseeing, and rooting for the NY Giants.

Past recipients of the Bridge Marina scholarship include Jefferson Township residents Ben Castrogiovanni, Heather LaRose, William Caruso, Daniel Mickel, Dennis McCormick, Tom Jauch, and Scott King, as well as Sparta Township resident Andy Richards.
