A special thank you to Meteorologist, Jason Nappi with News Center Maine.
Jason presented at the 2023 METS Annual Career Fair on his career in weather science. Jason shared that it was when he was a middle school student that he fell in love with Maine’s winter weather, and started thinking about his future. His message to the student was to follow their dreams and don’t let negative messaging stand in their way. He impressed upon the students that anything is possible if you work hard enough.
Jason shared weather videos that captured unexpected thunder snow and strange weather patterns. Jason encouraged the students interested in weather science careers to take lots of math and science classes in school, to ask questions, and explore options because anything is possible.
Thank you Jason for such a powerful and caring presentation!
