Dr. Jhin Named 2010 Outstanding Alumnus of the Year at Lipscomb

April 12, 2010 0 Comments

Each year, all of our partner universities choose a distinguished alumus or alumna to honor.  This year, Dr. Paul Kyo Jhin was the recipient of Lipscomb’s Outstanding Alumni Award.  I’ve been following our partner universities’ awards this year, and this one, in particular, caught my attention.  I think this is due to the fact that Dr. Jhin has dedicated his life to serving young people both nationally and internationally.  This is seen most clearly in his work in organizations such as the Peace Corps, District of Columbia Public School System and the United Nations.  Please take time to follow the links below and read both of Lipscomb’s news releases about this inspiring individual.
