Congratulations to the following outstanding students on their selection for our Fall 2018 scholarships!
Adam Weiner is a Junior at Millersville University in Pennsylvania, majoring in Meteorology with a minor in Environmental Hazards & Emergency Management. He is very active on campus and has earned many accolades for his achievements. Adam participates in both the Campus Weather Service and the National Collegiate Weather Challenge, and also serves as an officer for both the local chapter of AMS and the International Association of Emergency Managers. He was selected as a NOAA Hollings Scholar in 2018. After graduating, Adam plans to earn his Master's and Ph.D. in atmospheric science. He hopes to become a forecaster with the National Weather Service, and eventually move into research with a focus on severe thunderstorm forecasting and communication with the public.
Jacob Genuise is a Sophomore at the University of Oklahoma, majoring in Meteorology with minors in Math and Sociology. He is a member of the OU Honors College and received the AMS Freshman Undergraduate Scholarship in Fall 2017. He was peer-elected as the Freshman Representative for the OU-SCAN Student Chapter of the AMS/NWA and is also employed as a Student Operator with the Oklahoma Mesonet. Jacob is inspired by people and was particularly impacted by early memories of Hurricane Katrina. This drove him to consider a minor in sociology, which he hopes will allow him to help discover better ways to serve society through improved forecasting and recovery aid.
