School of Meteorology Ph.D Student Katie Wilson wins National Award

The School of Meteorology would like to congratulate Katie (Bowden) Wilson on winning the National Weather Association’s Dr. Roderick A. Scofield Scholarship in Meteorology for 2016!

The award was made possible by the generous donation of the family of the late Dr. Roderick A. Scofield (1942-2006), a charter member of the NWA who rose to be elected its president for the year 2000. Dr. Scofield’s teaching and influence impacted many students and colleagues, and his superb efforts in providing teachers with continuing education and inspiring college students continues through this scholarship offering.This college scholarship opportunity is available annually to an aspiring meteorologist, and is a $1,000 benefit to be used for educational costs. Katie was awarded based on her academic achievement, recommendations by her mentors, and her personal statement. She is currently working on a Ph.D. in Meteorology.
School of Meteorology Director Dave Parsons had this to say about the Award:
“Congratulations on another award. Well done and well deserved! Nice to see stellar recognition of research that is interdisciplinary in nature.”
