OFI 1517: Learning The Business Of Radio In High School | FFA SAE Edition | Jordan Howell | Howells-Dodge High School FFA
As an agricultural broadcasters I can't say that it is not intimidating to interview a student who has risen to the level of being a national proficiency finalist in ag communications, but that is just what I did in today's interview with Jordan Howell. However, I found out something during the interview that compounded this original factor.
Jordan Howell is just completing her first semester at Iowa State University. All throughout high school she had been working at a radio station and learning the ins and out of the radio business, including the market reports for agriculture. She was able to compile this into a great supervised agricultural experience and record book, and ultimately this has culminated in her being selected as a national proficiency finalist this year!
With me being a self-trained, amateur agricultural broadcaster, that was intimidating enough. However, I am also a self-trained, amateur meteorologist, and during our interview I found out that Jordan had chosen to go to college in Iowa because she is pursuing a degree in meteorology, and she though Iowa State Univeristy's program was exceptional.
I have looked into meteorology programs several time and decided that I did not have the mathematical aptitude to complete one. However, that did not stop me from asking Jordan a lot of questions about meteorology and having a very interesting conversation about....you guessed it, the weather!
