Tom Craighead selected as 2013 Member of the Year

At the Propeller Club’s Maritime Day Celebration on May 22, President Jim Gillen announced Tom Craighead, Moran Towing, as the 2013 Member of the Year. Here’s an excerpt from the announcement…

Tom is a longstanding member, leader and friend to the maritime industry in Jacksonville, and Tom was unanimously voted the 2013 Member of the Year of the Propeller Club of the United States – Port of Jacksonville. Tom serves on the Board of Directors of the Jacksonville Marine Transportation Exchange, as well as serving on our club’s board for more than a decade. He graciously volunteers and supports our club in every aspect, most recently working with Ed Coppedge growing membership, and the consistency of the club’s success can be attributed in many ways to Tom’s leadership, encouragement and commitment to tradition. His involvement on the Harbor Safety committee has made this port a safer place to visit. When a need presents itself, without hesitation Tom steps up to fulfill it. Tom’s proven leadership and dedicated service to our organization and the maritime community is admired and greatly appreciated.

Thanks and Congratulations, Tom!
