Clyburn, 2nd Grand Vice President and Master of the
Pride of Michigan, invited Detroit lodge
members to assist in a training session for his
young prospective mariners, who participate in the
Sea Cadet Program aboard the Pride of
Michigan. Capt. Clyburn is President of the
Noble Odyssey Foundation, which operates the Pride
of Michigan. The event took place
on Friday, June 19, 2020 at the vessel's
Clinton River berth.
Ray Oset, Secretary-Treasurer of the lodge, conducted a class on marine navigation.
PGP Tom McMullen spoke to the cadets about his career on the Great Lakes. Capt. McMullen sailed some 40 years aboard vessels of the Ford Motor Co. and Interlake Steamship Co. fleets and was Captain of the M/V Stewart J. Cort when he retired.
Paul Jagenow, past Secretary-Treasurer of the lodge, spoke to the cadets about his career in the marine supply business at the J.W. Westcott Co., which operates the mailboat on the Detroit River.
The cadets showed a great deal of interest in what a career on the Great Lakes entails, everything from work conditions, potential wages, deck licenses vs. engine room licenses, working up the hawsepipe vs. attending a marine academy and so on.
Capt. Clyburn expressed his appreciation to the lodge members for helping with the training session.
