Zoe Bush ('25)
The President is responsible for the general operations of the club, as well as the club's well-being.
Hello! My name is Zoe Bush and I am a junior majoring in meteorology and minoring in mathematics. This year, I am the president of the club and am excited about what this year has to offer. I am from Stillwater, MN, and ended up in Oswego to see lake-effect snow, hopefully, this year there's more snow (fingers crossed). Since 1st grade, I wanted to be a storm chaser and chase tornadoes, however, that's not really a career. So instead, I want to be a researcher at either NSSL or NOAA researching severe weather in the plains. In my free time, I love to try out new coffee shops, take pictures of sunsets and clouds, be out on the lake, go shopping, travel, hike in the great outdoors, get those gains in the gym, and hang out with friends.
Sarah Gryskewicz ('26)
The Vice President works with the President for selected tasks, and assumes full leadership in the absence of the President.
Hi everyone! My name is Sarah Gryskewicz (she/her), and I am going to be serving as your vice president this year! I’m a sophomore from Wilkes-Barre, PA majoring in Meteorology and minoring in Mathematics and Computer Science. I’ve been interested in several branches of science since I was a kid, but meteorology is the one that piqued my interest the most throughout the years. Whether I was distracted watching storms at soccer practices, tuning in to my local station’s broadcast when a severe thunderstorm warning was issued, or even building an igloo after a Nor’easter dropped 27” of snow in my backyard, I always knew that I wanted to pursue a career in meteorology when I grew up. One of my favorite things about Oswego is the location because living next to one of the Great Lakes means we get to experience lake-effect snow events, which I've never had the joys of experiencing before back at home. Outside of class and the club, you’ll find me spending time with my friends, exercising, and looking for new music to enjoy. I can’t wait to meet everyone this year!
Ezekiel Caldon ('26)
The Treasurer handles all of the club's finances, from collecting money from members for trips to submitting purchase orders for club activities.
Hi, I’m Ezekiel Caldon (he/him), but you can call me Zeke. I’m excited to be your treasurer for the meteorology club this year! I became interested in meteorology because I experienced some weird weather as a little kid when my family lived in north central Texas, including several strong thunderstorms, heat waves, and a snowstorm that brought over a foot of snow. My passion for weather continued when we moved to my now hometown of Albany, NY over a decade ago, and continues today as I pursue a major in meteorology with a minor in computer science. This year I am participating in the NASA Eclipse Ballooning Project. I also keep myself busy as a soccer referee and a broomball god. In my free time, I also enjoy hiking, biking, a good board game, and a day/night out with friends. Looking forward to working with all of you this year!

Ben Lamsma ('26)
The public relations officer is in charge of all social media accounts, and helps to organize and promote all club events and activities.
Hello people! My name is Ben Lamsma (any pronouns), but I just go by Bee, and I am your public relations officer. I am going into my Sophomore year as a Meteorology major with a Mathematics minor. I am originally from Chicago, Illinois but my family now live over by Denver, Colorado so that's where I spend some of my breaks. When I'm not doing school stuff I am a STEM tutor for the Office of Learning Services and a Cross Country athlete. I have been running for 11 years now and it is one of my biggest and most involved interests. Alongside that, I also crochet and spend most nights relaxing or watching shows with my friends. Being from the Chicago area, I grew up with relatively uninteresting weather, so when I heard about the crazy winters Oswego can have, it almost instantly became my first choice of school. I love studying crazy or unnatural weather events. If there's some kind of hurricane doing something funky, you can be sure I am learning all that I can about it. While I am still very early into my college years, I have started thinking about what I want to do after graduation. My brain is bouncing back and forth between continuing on to grad school so I can go into research or starting at the National Weather Service and building a career there.
Nicholas Cusano ('24)
The Community Outreach officer aids the Public Relations officer with selected tasks, as well as seeks out community service and publicizing certain club activities.
Hi, my name is Nicholas Cusano. I am a senior Meteorology major with a Music minor. I will be serving as the Community Outreach Officer this year for OSSCAMS. From a young age, I have always enjoyed sitting and watching thunderstorms or playing outside after a snowstorm. I went into this major since weather has been something I am passionate about and there is never a dull moment when it comes to the unpredictability of weather. Alongside weather I am a huge music person throughout my college career I have been apart of multiple Jazz Bands, choirs, taken vocal lessons and was a vocal coordinator for a Show Choir called "Vocal Effect". Getting back to meteorology alongside being apart of OSSCAMS I will also be serving as one of the Student Forecast Leaders for the Lake-Effect Storm Prediction and Research Center(LESPaRC). Once I graduate I hope to keep improving my forecasting skills in the private industry of meteorology.
