Palm Beach County School Board Award
The Palm Beach County School Board recognized the USGS for their efforts in working with the students of Forest Hill High School in West Palm Beach, Fla. Aaron Higer, South Florida Information Access (SOFIA) coordinator at WRD in Miami, accepted the award on behalf of the USGS. The USGS has helped install a state-of-the-art weather station on the Forest Hill campus that will help the students collect meteorological and groundwater data. The students of Forest Hill will be using these data to help forecast weather and will publish their findings in their school newspaper. The SOFIA web site will also be working with the school to help develop a similar site for their project. Further information will be available at
