News Channel Seven Chief Meteorologist Christy Henderson visited Jonesville’s sixth grade students on Monday, Oct. 5 to do a weather presentation. She talked with the students about current weather conditions, as well as storm situations. She also shared the steps she took in her career path to become a meteorologist, and explained the steps the interested students could take to follow in her footsteps. Ms. Hughey’s students have been studying weather since the beginning of September. The last two weeks have been a very busy time for them due to the dangerous weather conditions, but they have been able to apply what they have learned and track hurricane Joaquin. Henderson also discussed past hurricanes like Hugo and Katrina, when the students were discussing the damage from Joaquin.
