State Farm Insurance Gives WiSE Generous Donation

TTU faculty and students surround the State Farm representative as he donates the check to WiSE.

State Farm's Regional Office donated a generous sum of $25,000 to the Wind Science and Engineering Research Center (WiSE) on Saturday, February 25, at the 2012 Severe Weather Awareness Day at Lubbock's Science Spectrum. The event is focused on raising awareness of severe weather events.

The financial support will be used to assist in making valuable scientific measurements from thunderstorms and hurricanes, as well as supporting outreach activities and the development of WiSE graduate students.
