MMA Mourns Death of Friend, Trustee Emeritus Joseph Sewall

CASTINE, Maine - Maine Maritime Academy mourns the loss of friend and Trustee Emeritus, The Honorable Joseph Sewall, who died Wednesday, November 23, 2011, at a Bangor hospital. The Academy flag flew at half-mast for the past several days in memory of Mr. Sewall who will be fondly remembered by the Board of Trustees, MMA President William Brennan, and the Academy community for his significant volunteer service to the college, having served as a Trustee from 1983-2003. During that time he was a long-standing Chairman of the Board.

Mr. Sewall, a former Republican president of the Maine Senate and prominent Old Town businessman and civic leader, deeply cared about the development of Maine Maritime Academy, the growth of students, and the successes of our graduates. The condolences of the entire Academy community are extended to Mr. Sewall’s family and friends.
