Senior Spotlight May 2020 – Martin Lowrimore
This year we are continuing our tradition of Senior Spotlights! With graduation postponed, it is more important than ever to highlight this spring’s graduating class.
The class of May 2020 is experiencing their last few weeks of college unlike any of those who came before them. It has been a tough time, but the seniors are adapting to new ways of learning and are continuing to celebrate their accomplishments thus far.
Meet Martin Lowrimore! Like many of his peers, Martin knew he wanted to be a meteorologist from a very young age. “I’ve been into weather since I was three, I always watched on-air meteorologists during severe weather,” he said.
Martin transferred to OU after earning an Associate’s degree from Carl Albert State College near his home town, Poteau, Oklahoma. He was actively involved in OU Nightly and worked in many different positions from an on-air meteorologist to a video playback operator.
Moving to OU from small-town Oklahoma was difficult for Martin. “I was a small-town kid, transferring to Norman was a big culture shock to me. I made so many new friends that all cared for me and helped me in these past insane 3 years,” he told us.
Now with an Associate’s degree and a Bachelor’s degree in Meteorology, Martin has a job lined up in Rogers, Arkansas, “I recently accepted a job at my home market on 40/29 News as the Weekend Meteorologist and I start on the 18th of May!”
Congratulations Martin! The School of Meteorology is excited to see all you do in the future!
