Southwest Purdue Ag Center  25Years of Service Award

The National Weather Service (NWS) honored the Southwest Purdue Agriculture Center for 25 years of service as a Cooperative Weather Observing Station. The award was presented March 8th.

Cooperative weather observations started at the Ag Center in the spring of 1980. This occurred when two other agricultural weather stations in the area closed and the consolidated operations were relocated to the present site about 5 miles northeast of Vincennes.

The 25 year award was presented to the employees of the Southwest Purdue Ag Center by Phil Gray (pictured center), and Ed Terrell (not pictured) Hydrometeorological Technicians.


The NWS applauds the efforts of the employees at the Southwest Purdue Ag Center and looks forward to many more years of faithful service.
