Dr. Benjamin Ola Akande is the newest President of Westminster College in Missouri and the first African to lead the liberal arts college, a place where Winston Churchill gave the Iron Curtain speech nearly 70 years ago. Akande came to the United States 36 years ago from Nigeria and says while he's honored, this is a dream come true for him. Mariama Diallo has the story.
