Dog Tag Bakery Serves Up Sweets and Helps Those Who Have Served

Apr 18, 2016

Dog Tag Inc., named after military identification “dog tags,” is on a mission to help those who have served their country.

“There’s a joke that when you put on your resume ‘I was a sniper,’ there are not too many companies that are looking to hire that,” said Meghan Ogilvie, chief executive officer of Dog Tag Inc. Her organization helps put veterans with service-related disabilities back into the workforce.

KTTZ Producer, Emily de Santos, swept the pool from the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association 2016 Awards by winning first place in "Best News Photo," "Best Sports Feature Photo," and "Best Photo Illustrations," which she shares with Duncan Stanley and Kirby Crumpler.  

Clinton Barrick, Station Manager and Director of Programming for Texas Tech Public Radio, was honored yesterday at the Texas Tech University Length of Service Awards Ceremony for working with public radio for 25 years. 

The ceremony took place in the Student Union Ballroom, where Barrick and his fellow peers received awards for their dedicated service to Texas Tech from 15 years up to 50 years.
