Local Student Chapter of the Year Award
The American Meteorological Society announced Sunday that the East Mississippi Chapter of the National Weather Association (NWA) and American Meteorological Society (AMS) was awarded the “Local Student Chapter of the Year” award. The chapter was awarded for creating numerous opportunities for members to broaden their professional networks and knowledge, and for strengthening the chapter’s role within the national AMS community.
The East Mississippi Chapter of the NWA and AMS is Mississippi State University’s student meteorological organization. The chapter promotes excellence in operational meteorology through research, forecasting, broadcasting, and education. The officers work to build relations between all who work with and study meteorology in east Mississippi and the surrounding area.
