NBC's Chief Meteorologist Speaks to D.A. Students
Dominican Academy was thrilled to welcome Janice Huff, chief meteorologist for WNBC in NYC, to our A.P. Environmental Science class this week. Huff is not only an example of a successful woman in the sciences, but also of an active and engaged member of her community.
After completing her degree in meteorology at Florida State University, Huff went on to become a successful meteorologist. She has received numerous honors for her professional and personal example to New York City youth. Huff's professional awards include Bronx Community College's "Kaleidoscope Award" for excellence in television meteorology and a St. Louis Emmy Award for "Best Weathercaster." She is a member of the American Meteorological Society, National Association of Black Journalists, National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, and the New York Friars' Club.
During her talk with our seniors, Huff spoke about the field of meteorology and gave poignant advice on how to enter the field; her personal professional journey; and spoke candidly about her experiences as a woman and a minority in the field.
Our students were beyond excited and thrilled to hear her speak. What an honor!
