10 Year Challenge! What were you doing in 2009? How did it help you reach your current position?

In 2009 I was my junior year in High School in Clinton County Indiana. I was working at a radio station and helping with severe weather storm coverage, being in a unique role alerting the community about impending severe storms I became known as the weather guy on the radio that covered 18 counties and 2 states. I quickly learned the importance of building community trust, and crisis management.
