Lint Center Vice Chairwoman Receives Doctorate in Educational Leadership

The Lint Center for National Security Studies, Anna Hyonjoo Lint, Awarded PhD with Dissertation on Student Persistence in E-Learning

The Lint Center, a non-profit charity, focused on supporting the educational pursuits of the next generation of America’s Counterintelligence and National Security Workers, today formally announced that Anna Hyonjoo Lint was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy in Educational Leadership from the College of Education at Trident University International.

“We are enormously proud of the hard work and dedication Anna has demonstrated by completing her Doctoral studies,” said Gary Scher, Scholarship Committee Chairman at the Lint Center for National Security Studies. “Doctor Lint’s accomplishment of achieving the highest academic recognition in her field is an impressive standalone triumph. However, her achievement is even greater when one realizes it was attained in a second language. Dr. Lint’s success clearly demonstrates that language need not be a barrier and her example further illustrates the character of persistence as well as steadfast commitment to education that we all share.”

As Mr. Scher further observed, “The Lint Center is focused on providing educational opportunities for students across the board and to have a senior executive team member attain this educational milestone serves to demonstrate the Center’s deep commitment to education. We congratulate Anna on a job well done and look forward to further benefiting from her expertise.”

The complete dissertation and the findings of the study on “The Impact of Student Progress Factors on Student Persistence in E-Learning” by Dr. Anna Hyonjoo Lint will be published in Proquest.
