Madison Campbell, a senior meteorology student, and Reggie Roakes, a current graduate student and recent graduate of Mississippi State, have been named Co-Symposium Chairs for the 2018-2019 academic year.
Madison will oversee the planning processes and university relations. Reggie will handle the public relations side, including event promotion.
President Lauren Pounds said, "Madison and Reggie have both exemplified their dedication, drive, and selflessness throughout their time as chapter members." She continued, "They both have big, creative ideas to further improve the symposium. We’re thrilled have two extremely qualified and eager students plan the 17th Annual Severe Storms Symposium!"
With over a dozen applications, which is a record amount for the chapter, the executive board simply did not have enough slots to fill with all of the qualified candidates.
Madison and Reggie assumed the roles immediately after the chapter meeting on September 18.
