Changing Weather: The Story of June Bacon-Bercey

By Ashlee Klemm
Picture Books

June, a bright and motivated young woman, always excelled in school. The atmosphere fascinated her, so she chose to study meteorology. A person as intelligent and capable as June should be a welcome addition to any science, but that wasn’t the case. June was African American, and never before had an African American woman earned a degree in meteorology. Undeterred, June persisted and blazed the trail for others to follow.
