Propeller Club recognizes Parker College of Business Students
Two students in the Parker College of Business have been awarded a $1,000 scholarship from the Propeller Club United States – Port of Savannah.
Mohammad Abdullah and Alecia Breen received the Gus Dubus Scholarship, which is awarded by the Propeller Club each year to four area college students who maintain a 3.0 GPA while majoring in logistics and intermodal transportation.
“The Propeller Club – Port of Savannah is all about bringing the maritime community together,” stated Abdullah, senior logistics student and Parker Business Scholar. “To be a part of this prestigious award will not only develop my network but also build my résumé. The money was great, but the ability to build my network was priceless.”
The scholarship is named for the late Gus Dubus who was a Savannah maritime lawyer and past president of the Propeller Club.
The Propeller Club of Savannah is comprised of nearly 300 individuals representing more than 145 companies and groups that do business with or have a connection to the Savannah port. The group also sponsors the annual State of the Port address by Georgia Ports Authority Executive Director Griff Lynch.
