Port Houston’s maritime education program has gained momentum in recent years, providing professional opportunities for students in local school districts.

The program’s focus is to encourage area students to pursue career opportunities in the maritime, transportation or affiliated fields, including: logistics, freight, security and environmental affairs.

The port recently sponsored five maritime education graduation dinners for students in the region, highlighting program completion for this academic year. The schools included: Jack Yates Magnet High School, Stephen F. Austin High School, Galena Park High School, LaPorte High School and Pasadena Dr. Kirk Lewis Career and Technical High School.

“Part of the Port of Houston Partners in Maritime Education’s mission is to support our students in their continued advancement into the maritime industry,” said Gilda Ramirez, senior director for small business and education outreach for Port Houston. “One way of supporting them is to provide opportunities that will benefit their post-secondary education.”
