2014 Jim Johnson Scholarship

The High Plains Chapter of the AMS/NWA is pleased to announce that the 2014 Jim Johnson Scholarship has been awarded to Rachel Phinney.  Rachel will graduate from Grand Island Northwest High School and will attend the University of Nebraska at Lincoln (U.N.L.) beginning this fall.  She will major in meteorology and hopes to gain employment as an operational forecaster upon graduation from U.N.L.  The Jim Johnson Scholarship Selection Committee received several strong candidates again this year, but the committee found Rachelís essay to be well-written and most inspiring.  Congratulations Rachel!
