ISTORM Officers

President

Hi, I’m Jared Stickney! I am a Senior majoring in Atmospheric Sciences with a minor in Creative Writing. I am currently doing research on air quality in different classroom environments. My favorite parts of atmospheric sciences are severe weather and air quality/aerosols. Outside of school, I love to roller skate, take extremely average photos, hike, and play video games. I’m so excited and honored to be a part of making ISTORM a more welcoming and fun place for all students. Hope to see you around!
