Saluting the students
We hope that through the recent round of storminess across the country, one idea shone through on this website: That the real workhorses of this team are the high school and college students spread across twelve states that make Foot’s Forecast a innovative multi-state collaborative. Before the next attack of wild weather gets underway this week, the advisors would like to take this time and salute these dedicated, energetic and hard-working students for managing updates, collaborating at all hours of the night, posting facebook reports, consistently featuring NWS graphics, linking to public safety advisories, and engaging the readers to do whatever it takes to keep all of us ahead of the storm. Our sincere gratitude for serving as an excellent example to all of us, and for being the proof of what your readers already know: Students are capable of achieving much more than most people expect.
With deep appreciation to our student forecasters,
Mr. Foot, Mr. Lear and the Advisory Team
