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.
Each year the College of Atmospheric & Geographic Sciences awards one graduating senior within the college the Outstanding Senior award. For the 2019-2020 school year, Annalisa Sanfilippo was selected for this honor. Annalisa will graduate with a BS in meteorology with special distinction and a minor in aerospace studies, this spring (2020).
Jason is from Troy, Ohio and came to Oklahoma to study here at the School of Meteorology. He told us that he has always been interested in the weather and Oklahoma was the perfect place for him to study meteorology alongside aviation.
