Neil Armstrong crew receiving Penzance Award

One Ship, Two Awards

At WHOI's annual Employee Appreciation Celebration, the crew of R/V Neil Armstrong received the Penzance Award for “sustained exceptional performance, for outstanding representation of the WHOI spirit, and for major contributions to the personal and professional lives of our staff.” But in a surprise, additional award, Richard Pittenger (background, hand over mouth) received a model of the ship in recognition of his sustained effort to make Neil Armstrong and its sister ship, Sally Ride, a reality. The Penzance Award, held by Neil Armstrong chief engineer Gary McGrath, will hang inside the ship; the ship model will be displayed in Fenno House on WHOI's Quissett Campus.
