AML VP Takes Board Seat at Highline College

Jake Maenpa, vice president of Alaska Marine Lines, will now serve on the advisory board for the Global Trade and Supply Chain Management Program at the Highline College in Des Moines, Wash. He takes over for Lynden Transport retiree Mike Oliver, who served as a longtime board member.

As one of the six companies donating to support the program, Lynden recently gave $5,000 toward the college’s study abroad curriculum, which assists students in following the supply chain on local, national and international levels. Students will study global transportation and trade in China and other locations.
