Congratulations to our recipients!

The Southeast chapter of The Hydrographic Society of America is pleased to announce that we have awarded $14,000 in scholarships for the 2023-2024 academic year.

I want to thank the hard work of the SE Chapter  education committee in determining who was awarded.

We thank all of our sponsors of our events throughout the year. Without them none of this would be possible.

Dearly Departed

We are devastated by the sudden loss of our colleague and dear friend Don Ventura. With an impressive career, Don was an IHO Category ‘A’ Charge Surveyor, Fellow and Chartered Marine Scientist (Hydrography) with the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST); he was engaged in hydrography since 1984. His experience included 22 years’ service as a hydrographic surveyor in the British Royal Navy, (including 3 years’ exchange with the US Navy at the Naval Oceanographic Office, Stennis Space Center, Mississippi), 3 years employed with SAIC (now Leidos) and 14 years with Fugro. Don was a passionate and dedicated member of the Teledyne Geospatial Product Management Team leading Bathy Lidar Solutions, which greatly benefitted from his tenured experience and professional accreditations. Don’s enthusiasm for the people and technology was evident to everyone who worked with him.
