2018 Lighthouse Service Award Recipient

The Lighthouse Award recognizes a graduate or honorary alum for their volunteer spirit and significant and notable service to — or on behalf of — Cal Maritime. This year’s winner was Captain Shirley Kohlwes. Kohlwes was the first female captain in the Red and White Fleet in San Francisco Bay. After her retirement, she joined Cal Maritime as the first director of Career Development — placing cadets on commercial cruises and graduates on their way to successful careers. She was instrumental in creating Cal Maritime’s Career Fair, which continues to this day. She was known on campus for her willingness to invest time and energy into the success of individual students.
