Tate Grad Returns To Explain Meteorology To Students

March 13, 2019

Tate High School students learned about the weather and a careers in meteorology from a Tate graduate.

Cantonment native Alexandra Kent visited Stephanie Price’s class Monday. She works as a weekend meteorologist for Delta News, a group of television stations in the Mississippi Delta.

Kent told the students that she wanted to be meteorologist since elementary school, and that desire was fueled by Hurricane Ivan in 2004 and a tornado outbreak in April 2011.

She will graduate from Mississippi State this May with a degree in meteorology degree at Mississippi State. She plans to work at a news station and pursue her master’s degree.

Kent graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2014 from Tate High School where she was a member of the Multimedia Academy. She also attended Ransom Middle School and Pine Meadow Elementary, and volunteered at Escambia Westgate.
