On the week of Sept. 10, Apex High School sophomore Matt Rice became the youngest presenter ever for the 41st National Weather Association convention. The annual meeting took place in Norfolk, Virginia, and lasted five days. This year’s convention theme was “Connecting Operational Meteorologists in Pursuit of Excellence in Weather Forecasting, Communication and Service”.
Hundreds of “professionals in meteorology and the related sciences” attended the meeting for the five workshops offered. In addition, Rice met the association's president, David Freeman, for a photo including his presentation titled Social Meteorology & its Impact During Severe Weather.
Rice was featured in the September/October President’s Message here. Congratulations Matt!
