Alex Luna '18 was hailed as a local hero last week after risking his life to save a drowning puppy while he was covering a story as a reporter for the San Antonio Express-News. As Luna was wrapping up a story on local flooding, someone alerted him and a San Antonio Park Police officer about a puppy flailing in the flood waters. Eager to help, the two men quickly devised a plan, and the park officer lowered Luna on a rope to save the desperate pup. 

Luna graduated two weeks ago from A&M-SA with a Bachelor of Science degree in communications. He is former assistant editor of The Mesquite and a graduate of the Univision Media Lab-Capstone Experience.
