Cadet Spotlight: Meet 4/C Clayton Tipton (MTRA - Safety Harbor, FL)


Meet 4/C Clayton Tipton, a Marine Transportation major who calls Safety Harbor, Florida, a city on the west shore of Tampa Bay, home. 

Clayton attended
Safety Harbor Elementary School, Safety Harbor Middle School, and Calvary High School.

When asked how her son developed his love of the ocean, his proud mom summed it up like this, “We live in Florida!  Everyone loves the water here!”

With each fishing trip, Clayton’s love of boating grew.

Clayton would like to give a shoutout to all of the students participating in the Follow The Voyage-Share The Experience Program from his home state of Florida. He is looking forward to docking in his home state on Friday and seeing some familiar faces while on liberty.
