Not only do our broadcast Meteorologists present the weather for various news casts, they also present the weather out in the community. Meteorologist Jessica Moore visited Huntington High School’s JAG classes this afternoon and spoke about her role as a weekend Meteorologist and what steps she took to get there.

JAG stands for Jobs for America’s Graduates. This program aims to prepare high school students for graduation and the transition afterwards into college, the workforce, or the military. In preparation for this, Huntington High School’s JAG specialists, April King-Thomas brought in KSLA’s Jessica Moore. Some of the topics she focused on were college, internships, and job shadowing.
