Apprentice in the Spotlight

Anthony Ness has been with the Alexandria Seaport Foundation for close to a year, as he graduated from the Apprentice Program and was then hired to become an assistant in the boat shop.  After much hard work and a dedication to change, he is a responsible, productive young man committed to being a leader in his community.

An extremely talented artist, Anthony has done several oil paintings for ASF fundraising auctions, sketched pen and ink drawings of both the Seaport Center and the new dory boats, and painted a beautiful decorative boat for Seaport Day (currently on display at the Torpedo Factory).

Anthony is a wonderful mentor to new apprentices entering the program and a powerful example of the impact of ASF’s programs on young people in need of direction.
