The Lint Center for National Security Studies, Inc., a non-profit organization focused on supporting the next generation of America’s National Security professionals through scholarship and mentoring opportunities, today announced the award of the 2017 Jim and Anna Hyonjoo Lint Scholarship.
Paige M. Ziegler, an undergraduate at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) cadet, was awarded the 2017 Jim and Anna Hyonjoo Lint Scholarship for her commitment to advancing national security. The Jim & Anna Hyonjoo Lint Scholarship provides a $1,500 award to recipients pursuing scholastic study in fields related to international affairs, counterintelligence, global understanding, and national security studies.
On campus, Ms. Ziegler serves as a shining example to her peers and fellow junior level ROTC cadets. She is currently pursuing a degree in Homeland Security with a focus on Terrorism and Military Science. Once completed, Ms. Ziegler plans to commission as an Officer in the United States Army with the Active Duty Aviation branch and to eventually serve with a government agency tasked with strengthening national security and counterterrorism efforts.
Ms. Ziegler’s winning scholarship essay provided a careful analysis of deployment and withdrawal solutions to America’s ongoing efforts in Afghanistan. In her analysis, Ms. Ziegler stood out to the scholarship committee with her acute knowledge of the American presence in Afghanistan. Additionally, her academic prowess, demonstrated persistence, and deep desire to serve our country makes her an invaluable asset to the national security community and a worthy recipient of her scholarship.
“I am so very blessed to receive the Jim and Anna Hyonjoo Lint Scholarship,” explained Ms. Ziegler. “Any student who struggles to make ends meet knows that scholarships are a huge help. This scholarship means so much more than just a monetary supporting hand. Having access to experienced and dedicated mentors that are willing and able to support my future career is truly priceless – I am most appreciative of the Lint Center’s enduring support.”
Ms. Ziegler added, “Not only has Mr. Lint himself made me more confident in pursuing my aspirations by reaching out to me on a personal level, but the entire Lint Center team has welcomed me with open arms. I am excited to be a part of this organization, and hope that one day I can graciously return the favor of mentoring the generations to come.”
“This year was an especially competitive competition,” said Mr. James R. Lint, President and CEO of the Lint Center for National Security Studies. “ROTC Cadet Ziegler was highly qualified for this scholarship due to her excellent application and that she is ranked #1 out of 58 Cadets in her ROTC Battalion. We look forward to her excelling in future activities in her military career.”
