RightNav continues scholarship grant to 20 high school students

 

Nurtures potential talent through a stronger partnership with Claveria School of Arts and Trades

 

Manila, 30 November 2017 -- RightNav has revealed that it will continue its scholarship grant to 20 high school students of the Claveria School of Arts and Trades in Cagayan Valley. This initiative is part of RightNav's effort to develop individuals and help them build their careers in maritime industry. This is testament to the company's dedication to help students further hone their skills and keep reaching for their dreams.

 

The scholarship grant, which offers a four-year educational assistance to deserving students, provides industry-relevant training for progression opportunities. The program started on 23 March 2015 and a certificate of recognition was presented to RightNav Maritime founder, Captain Renel C. Ramos. He officially confirmed the scholarship grant deal with the school coordinator of Claveria School of Arts and Trades, Ms. Mercy Rona D. Salvador on the 10 November 2017, and in the name of youth development, a new certificate of recognition will be given to the company before the school year 2018-2019 commences.

 

Capt. Ramos says, "The scholarship grant to public schools like the Claveria School of Arts and Trades is a very good value for money. Imagine, around Php20,000 can already pay for the annual tuition fees of 20 deserving students. This amount may be small for companies but it is already a very big help to our students. At a very young age of 14, I learned technical workshop skills in this school and we hope that this will continue." He adds that RightNav Maritime aims to expand to consequently increase the number of scholarship grantees.

 

Capt. Ramos further explains that Claveria which is located in the northern region of the country remains a strategic place to maintain RightNav's presence considering the maritime expansion of Curimao Port, Port Irene and the new Claveria Port which is under construction. Imagine, Singapore has around 500 vessel movements per day and we in the northern Philippines have none. Knowing that the northern Philippines is adjacent to a transhipment hub of Kaohsiung, Taiwan, there is still a potential in this area.

 

Claveria School of Arts and Trades is a technical-vocational school established in 1967. It is geared at training and producing graduates prepared for the various occupational needs in the world of industrial work. The school is consistently a champion for technical skills in the region and national level competition.

 

RightNav, a maritime industry consultancy service provider, is formed by a group of Merchant Marine officers, technical superintendent, ship's agent and lawyers headed by Capt. Renel C. Ramos. The company envisions to be the preferred consultant and growth partner in the field of maritime operations and port management.
