Alumni Association

2010 Rising Star Award Recipient

Fred HenningFredrick W. Henning, D-95, was honored with the  CSU Maritime Academy Alumni Association’s 2010 Rising Star Award, which recognizes graduates within the past 15 years who have brought credit or distinction to the Academy through their outstanding personal or professional accomplishments.

Fred grew up around the water and as a teenager, worked summers on a Lake Michigan ferry where he got his 100-ton Coast Guard Master’s license. A colleague told him about Cal Maritime, and with his love of the water and early experience, he quickly established himself as one of the school’s top students.
Soon after graduating in 1995, Fred joined Baydelta Maritime and quickly advanced from a mate operator-in-training to Captain and eventually to General Manager. Fred selflessly gave back to Cal Maritime as a member and officer of the Alumni Association and Foundation Boards, and a member of the school’s Industry Advisory Board.

An avid golfer, Fred served as chair of the Cal Maritime Annual Golf Tournament. Fred also served on the Board of Directors for the San Francisco Marine Exchange. In 2004, Fred was awarded a Certificate of Merit from the United States Coast Guard for sustained meritorious service in support of United States Maritime Security for his service as a member of the Northern California Port Security Committee. Fred crossed the final bar in August of 2009 and is survived by his wife Nicholle, son Nathan and daughter Greta.
