  POSTED ON: Saturday, January 2, 2016 10:20 AM by Professor Paul Miller

Ensign Duncan Mamer graduated in May 2015 with a B.S. in Naval Architecture (honors) from the U.S. Naval Academy.  Since then, he earned the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) Undergraduate Honor Paper Award for his honor’s thesis on a lightweight canoe design and construction.  The award is the highest national award given to naval architecture undergraduates.  As skipper of the Navy 44 Sail Training Craft “Gallant”, he led the crew to first overall in the Annapolis-to-Bermuda Race.  After an exceedingly successful summer, he is now continuing his career in the Navy's Submarine and Nuclear Power Schools in preparation for duty onboard submarines.  Congratulations to Ensign Mamer and all of our Class of 2015 graduates who are pursuing their Navy careers!
