Kelly and Anxhelo selected for prestigious national programs

Two group members were chosen for selective science leadership workshops in June 2019. Congratulations Kelly and Anxhelo!

Kelly Graham joined the American Meteorological Society Summer Policy Colloquium in Washington, DC with funding support from the National Science Foundation. For ten days, Kelly joined a small group of graduate students and faculty from across the US for immersion in science policy. The program is designed to train future leaders in national science policy and funding. The group met with many current science leaders, including Dr. Kelvin Droegemeier, Director of Office of Science and Technology.

Anxhelo Agastra was selected for the Undergraduate Leadership Workshop at NCAR. The program gathered about 20 undergraduate geoscience majors from universities across the country. During a week in Boulder, Colorado, they learned about science careers and leadership opportunities .
