Bridge Marina has awarded its 2016 “Bridge Marina Scholarship” to Heather LaRose of Jefferson Township at its Labor Day event earlier this month. 

For the past ten 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 is based upon member survey information as well as other factors. 

Ray Fernandez, owner of Bridge MarinaAccording to Ray Fernandez, owner of Bridge Marina, “We started this award 10 years ago as a way to recognize our Dock Hands and a way to say ‘thank you for a job well done.” When we asked Ray why Bridge Marina goes so far above-and-beyond by offering Scholarships. He quickly replied, “It’s just another way for us to be the very best at what we do. It’s all about ensuring that our members have an incredible experience, which means that they’ll always come back.”

Heather LaRoseIn speaking to the recipient of the Scholarship, Heather LaRose, who is a junior at Jefferson Township High School, “I love a challenge and the ability to learn something new, that’s what attracted to me this job two years ago. Since that time I have been able to learn about the boating industry, enough to the point that friends and neighbors now come to me for advice.”

When asked about what is the biggest challenge on the job, Heather responded, “Developing my organizational skills. I handle a wide variety of tasks here at the marina, I greet members, get them organized, and help get the boat underway. Many times you have multiple things that are all occurring at the same time, and you need to stay on-top-of-it. This job has really helped me in so many ways, each day is always different. I’ll definitely be back next summer for my senior year, as I love the job.”

When asked about her future beyond that, Heather hasn’t made any official plans. “I’d like to attend college somewhere locally and major in English, Art History or Biology. With the long-term desire to be an Author or Art Critic or even work for a publisher.”

Congratulations to Heather LaRose for excelling in her job, and for working with a company that goes above and beyond!
