From Boko Haram Captive To U.S. College Student

Apr 18, 2016

Boko Haram drew worldwide condemnation two years ago when the Nigerian extremist group kidnapped more than 250 girls from a school in Chibok, in northeastern Nigeria.

To this day, most of the girls are still missing. Last week, CNN aired a video purportedly showing several of them alive.

A few of the girls managed to escape — including 20-year-old Sa'a, a pseudonym she uses to protect herself. Last week she spoke with members of Congress, renewing calls for the United States to support Nigeria in the fight against Boko Haram.

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.
