Courtney Vengrin

Courtney Vengrin, adjunct assistant professor of veterinary clinical sciences at Iowa State, speaks about her experience as a Virginia Tech student when 33 people were killed at the university in 2007. Vengrin told the crowd at the vigil for mass shootings victims that she is "starting to feel like it's only a matter of time" before a mass shooting occurs in Ames. The vigil, held outside Rep. Steve King's office on Aug. 7, honored the victims of recent shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.
