CSU Well-Represented in National Weather Association Elections
Our department was well-represented in recent elections of the National Weather Association (NWA). ATS M.S. graduate Becca Mazur was chosen as President-elect/Board Director. She will begin a term on January 1, 2024, and assume the role of President in 2025. Becca received her M.S. degree from the department in 2007 under the guidance of Professor Tom Vonder Haar. Becca’s thesis was entitled “Observations of inflow feeder clouds and their relation to severe thunderstorms.” Current ATS graduate student Katurah McCants was elected director for the year 2024. Advised by ATS Professor and CIRA Director Steve Miller and mentored by John Haynes, Katurah is working on anticipating the capabilities/limitations of the forthcoming GeoXO 0.91 micron shortwave vapor band. Congratulations to both Katurah and Becca! The NWA is a professional association supporting and promoting excellence in operational meteorology and related activities.
