The 2014 EASE Picnic. THANK YOU to all of the volunteers, sailors, parents, and program partners who made this the best summer ever!
Project SAIL apprentices began their maritime training this week. Today was their first experience rowing our St. Ayles Skiff, “Mighty Oak.”
STEM Director and Project SAIL Instructor
Harold Rinn, a retired GE and Rail Power engineer, has worked part-time at BMC in the Bayfront Alternative Education Program and Project SAIL since 2009. Harold is a prime example of a retired professional giving back to their community. He frequently logs large amounts of volunteer hours with anything else that requires his expertise. Harold was awarded the “Presidential Volunteer Service Award: Silver Level” for serving over 250 volunteer hours this year at BMC. Harold works extensively with the students teaching them how to use BMC’s ShopBot CNC digital fabrication equipment. He is also the guru of cardboard boats and cigar box guitars, and has helped many groups with constructing a seaworthy vessel for the Cardboard Regatta. Harold is incredibly generous, patient, and talented. BMC is fortunate to have him on our team!
