Steve Pfaff, warning coordinator for the National Weather Service office in Wilmington, led the program.

Joshua Henderson says this is one step closer from him becoming a meteorologist.

“The stuff that people do here is going to help the community out and more people should be joining this SKYWARN thing so then people will be prepared for whatever Mother Nature has to throw at us,” Joshua said.

Joshua says he can’t wait to start helping the National Weather Service and join his father in storm spotting as he has done since 2007.
