Geography undergraduate featured in a front-page article in News-Sentinel

Melina Gardner, a sociology and geography major at UT, is featured in a front-page article in today’s News-Sentinel.  Melina, a Navy veteran, was part of the group that rescued Capt. Phillips when the Somali pirates held him hostage in the Indian Ocean (maybe you’ve seen the movie version). The article talks about her involvement in that action and about her work in the UT Office of Veterans Affairs.
