A local Morrisonville couple are being recognized by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration with the Ben Franklin Award. Bill and Dorothy Bullard will receive the award for their work with the cooperative observers program. Billy Ousley with NOAA said how people win the award.
Bill and Dorthy Bullard and their family have provided the National Weather Service Lincoln Office with weather data for over 20,000 days during their time with the program. Ousley explained in more detail what members of the cooperative observers program do.
The award will be the most recent of several that the Bullard’s have won over the years for their work with the cooperative observers program. Ms. Bullard had previously received the Thomas Jefferson Award, which is the highest and most prestigious award given to Cooperative Weather Observers.
