Students Participate in Hurricane Relief Fundraiser

School of Meteorology student organizations are working together this week to raise money for disaster relief in the wake of Hurricane Dorian.

The OU Student Chapter of AMS and NWA (SCAN) along with the Oklahoma Weather Lab (OWL) and the Student Affairs Committee (SAC) have come together before to raise money for a good cause, but this time some faculty members have sweetened the deal.

Donors can choose to drop their cash in a jar with a faculty member’s name on it. By the end of the week, the faculty member with the most money in their jar will get a pie to the face.

Students, Kelsey Britt and Melanie Schroers, volunteering to collect donations.

Students are targeting their favorite or maybe their least favorite professors.

Tyler Stanfield, the SCAN president, is happy to be collaborating with other student organizations within the School of Meteorology.

“As student organizations with such large student involvement we knew we could do a lot of good by providing students faculty and visitors of the national weather center with an avenue to aid the recovery efforts in the Bahamas.” Stanfield said.

Cash donations will be accepted on the fifth floor of the National Weather Center, Wednesday, September 18, and then the first floor beginning Thursday, September 19 until September 27 at 3 p.m.

Stay tuned on our social media to find out who will get a pie to the face. Will it be Dr. Jeff Basara, Dr. Jens Redemann, Dr. Cameron Homeyer, Dr. Phil Chilson, Dr. Elinor Martin, or Dr. Greg McFarquhar.
