A scholarship is being set up in the memory AccuWeather.com's Ken Reeves to help support undergraduates studying atmospheric sciences.
Reeves, an expert senior meteorologist, vice president and general manager of AccuWeather, Inc., Television Network, passed away in a tragic accident at his Lemont, Pa., home on March 25, 2012.
The Ken Reeves AccuWeather Memorial Scholarship
In memory of Reeves and his many contributions to the help and support of undergraduate students advance their careers in Atmospheric Sciences, AccuWeather is establishing a scholarship with the American Meteorological Society. The AMS is accepting contributions to endow a scholarship in Reeves' name and establish a permanent tribute to a wonderful man.
The scholarship will assist outstanding students pursuing undergraduate degrees in the atmospheric sciences looking to apply their skills to operational meteorology.
Reeves was a talented and devoted forecaster, who was passionate about meteorology and mentoring young professionals and students in pursuing their dreams of forecasting the weather. He was very involved with Penn State, attending career fairs, participating in weekly forecast discussions and helping with the Penn State Weather Camp.
Knowing Ken as a mentor myself, I know he would be honored to have a scholarship in his namesake to help advance studies in atmospheric sciences. All contributions, big and small, are welcome.
