High 5 4 Kids: Quincy Wells

High 5 4 Kids: Quincy Wells

NORTH AUGUSTA, SC (WFXG) - At only 10 years old, Quincy Wells has a lot of responsibilities. That includes the weather report every morning at Mossy Creek Elementary School.

"You say, 'Hey Mossy Creek, this is Quincy with your weather for today.' And I will say, '71 degrees and sunny,' as just an example,” Quincy said.

Quincy's mother, Shainna Charlton-Jones, said this has been an interest of his for a few months now.

"He may ask how different things change, and I may not always have the answer for him but he'll ask questions about different things that are going on with the weather,” Charlton-Jones said.

So we brought Quincy to the WFXG studio to speak with one of our meteorologists, Pat Prokop.

"When did you become interested in weather and meteorology?" Prokop asked the aspiring meteorologist.

"I've been doing science, and we've been doing experiments on weathering and changes and how stuff forms on earth," Quincy said.

And although he was a little camera shy as we were rolling, Quincy said he enjoyed his experience.

"It was pretty exciting,” he said. “That was my first time doing it and that was a good interesting thing for me to do."

Quincy is not just a rock-star at the weather. He also plays sports. Football is his favorite. He's also revered at his elementary school.

"He's really smart. He does a really good job of showing other students step-by-step processes and helping them with division or multiplication,” said Cari Conaway, one of Quincy's teachers. “I can really trust him. I can assign him to somebody and trust that he's going to do what I need him to do to help them out."

And Quincy has a lot of love and support from his family.

"We love him and we believe it takes a whole village to raise a child. So all of us are very involved in his life,” said Roslyn Wells, Quincy's grandmother.

So take a good look. You might just see this young man on the news in the near future.
