Jefferson Township Resident Awarded 2017 Scholarship

September 14, 2017

Ben Castrogiovanni recognized for outstanding performance

Bridge Marina awarded its 2017 “Bridge Marina Scholarship” to Ben Castrogiovanni of Jefferson Township at its Labor Day event earlier this month.  For the past 11 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{#/pub/images/benray2017.jpg} boating club members as well.

Castrogiovanni started working at Bridge Marina just this year as a dock hand.  About choosing Castrogiovanni 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 crew and team every year.  However, Ben showed extreme alignment with our vision and his interest and attention to customer service and serving our guests is exceptional.  I’m very proud and pleased to award Ben with this year’s scholarship.”

About the Bridge Marina Scholarship award program, which is now in its tenth year, Fernandez said, “It is a sincere pleasure to give out this award each year, and I always enjoy hearing our members’ input regarding which team member they believe should win the award.  Recognizing our team for their contributions and hard work is extremely important to us, and our scholarship program allows us to do just that, while also helping our staff members further their education and interests.”

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