Castine — Marshall Spear, of Rockport, class of 2018, a marine engineering technology major from Rockport, was named Nov. 13 as one of 10 Scheel Scholars at Maine Maritime Academy.

Henry A. Scheel, also of Rockport, was one of America’s most respected naval architects and yacht designers, according to a news release from the school. During his career, Scheel produced more than 250 complete designs which have been used by builders of sailboats and other craft in the U.S. and Europe. To express his high regard for Maine Maritime Academy, Scheel left funds in 1994 to permanently endow scholarships for students in the three upper classes who best exemplify intellectual curiosity and achievement.
