Blake is a senior at Ohio University majoring in meteorology and plans to graduate in 2018. He is originally from Old Washington, Ohio where he graduated from both Buckeye Trail High School and the Mid-East Career and Technology Center in 2013. Blake has had a passion for the weather since elementary school, primarily severe and winter weather, and has wanted to be a meteorologist ever since. While studying at the university, Blake is also a part of the Ohio University chapter of the American Meteorological Society and AVW productions. After graduating, Blake plans on becoming a broadcast meteorologist for a news network so he can help keep the public informed on the weather so they can plan their days or protect themselves in the event of severe weather.
