A North Richland Hills native won the scholarship named for NBC 5's first chief meteorologist Harold Taft.

Holly Mallinson is studying atmospheric sciences at the University of Louisiana at Monroe.

The award was created by NBC 5 and the Lone Star EMMY Educational Foundation.  Mallinson will be recognized at the Lone Star EMMY Awards Gala in Houston on Saturday, October 25.

Students must attend a Texas university or they must have four years of high school in Texas prior to college. Scholarship applicants and winners must study meteorology, atmospheric sciences or a related field.

Past recipients include Jorge Torres, chief meteorologist at KOB-TV, the NBC affiliate in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Mallinson is researching severe wind climatology at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. After earning her Bachelor's degree, she wants to pursue graduate school and focus on severe weather climatology.

"You'll find few people who think Calculus III is easy and thermodynamics is nothing to sneeze at either," wrote Mallinson in her application letter. "But despite hours spent deriving equations and analyzing skew-T diagrams, I love it.  I majored in atmospheric sciences because I love weather."

NBC 5 /KXAS-TV made the Harold Taft Scholarship possible thanks to a generous donation several years ago. The namesake of the program is Harold Taft, who served as Chief Meteorologist at NBC 5 (WBAP and KXAS-TV) from 1949 until 1991. 

NBC 5 Chief Meteorologist David Finfrock serves as chair of the committee for the Scholarship program.

A program that gets dads more involved in the lives of their children at school is impacting families all over the country.

It's called Watch DOGS — Dads of Great Students — and NBC 5 morning anchor Marc Fein hosted an event in Prosper that showed just how much this program means to families.

The dads were there, the students were there and even a dad in a giant dog outfit helped fire the kids up for the event.

All four Prosper-area elementary schools participated in this major launch event, which took place at the Prosper high school arena. The program helps dads spend at least one entire day with their child at school.

"I want to be a good role model for my daughter," Percy Clark, whose daughter goes to Folsom elementary in Prosper said. "She's my everything. I'm here for her."

Bill Anderson, whose son goes to Cockerill Hill Elementary School, didn't underestimate what it meant to him as a dad.

"I'm fortunate to have a duaghter to do this with and to spend time with," he said. "The schools let us come in there and spend the time. It's priceless."

FC Dallas goalie Chris Seitz and former Rangers pitcher Mike Henneman were featured speakers. They talked about the importance of being there for your kids, and these kids obviously get it.

"I like to have my dad around at my school cause I love him," Folsom Elementary School fourth grader Kaitlyn Clark said.

Cockerill Hill Elementary School's Keaton Anderson echoed that sentiment.

"It's really fun because my dad gets to go to school with me and spend time with me and help me with my grades," Anderson said.

It was only a launch event, but the this program is already impacting more than 4,000 schools in 46 states.
