Jordan Harms Wins A Lint Center National Security Scholarship
Publication Date: 4/5/2010
Rhodes sophomore Jordan Harms is one of four national winners to receive Lint Center for National Security Studies Scholarships for 2010.
He received the Jack McCoy Scholarship awarded to students interested in careers in national security and defense. The three other scholarships memorialize a different fallen hero or veteran, each with a different focus on national security.
Founded in 2007, the Lint Center for National Security Studies focuses on empowering individuals, enhancing the study of national security issues, and enabling emerging leaders to be mentored by established current-and-former industry experts.
In addition to receiving the scholarship, Harms will participate in a mentoring program with military and retired intelligence and national security officers. An international studies major from Mill Valley, Calif., Harms says he is grateful to his Rhodes mentor Professor Andrew Michta for writing a letter of recommendation for the scholarship. “I hope to mirror his career one day, or even come close! He is a fantastic guy and a great teacher,” says Harms.
Harms’ bio and essays submitted for the scholarship have been posted on the Lint Center’s Web site:
