Good News Recognition

Mike will be recognized at a Wichita Public School Board of Education meeting on Monday, August 26, 2013 at Wichita North High School for his generous donation of his book WARNINGS: The True Story of How Science Tamed the Weather. The recognition will be one of the celebration components for that evening. Mike is also presenting each BOE member and the Wichita Public School Superintendent with a signed copy.

 Mike has a heart for students and his love of science and meteorology began at a young age when a tornado destroyed his kindergarten classroom. By the time he was an 8th grader, Mike was forecasting his own tornado warnings and just like a modern day Paul Revere, he was able to convince school administration of an impending tornado in the vicinity of his junior high school and had the busses held from leaving after school  to protect students.
 
 
 
Because of Mike's generous donation of 90 books, every 6th grade teacher in the district will be given a copy of WARNINGS to help teach their students about the weather!
