Hello!   My name is Master Chief Pugh.

After serving in the Coast Guard for 22 years, including a tour here in Buffalo.  I retired from the Coast Guard in 2011 and worked in the private sector for about 6 years before joining Maritime's faculty for the 2017-2018 school year. 


I am now one of 5 Naval Science Instructors as well as the Maritime Careers Teacher.  The maritime careers class will be a maritime focused course that includes the previous "Boat Building" Class as well as a few other courses of instruction aimed at giving cadets an education on working and living on the water - while not serving in the US Military. 


My primary course of instruction is Naval Science 3 (NS3), intended for Juniors.  The NS3 course is centered on Operations and Seamanship and that is what I did for my 22 years in the Coast Guard.  Part of the curriculum (not counting any pandemic outbreaks) includes the NYS Safe Boating Class. 


For the 2021-22 School Year, I am also the chairman of the Junior Team.  So, any 11th cadets in academic trouble will need to work with me to ensure they make it through their junior year and move onto to be come seniors.
