H/t to Tim Coleman for passing on to me that the Lint Center for National Security Studies has received an award from George H. W. Bush’s Points of Light Foundation on September 11th. In particular, the award is “The Daily Points of Light.”

About the Points of Light Foundation:

People have always been at the center of change. People today have more power to drive change than ever before. At the same time, society is demanding much more from the world of volunteerism in the 21st century as a rapidly globalizing economy puts increasing pressure on governments, businesses, nonprofits and other institutions to do more with less.

To meet that need, volunteer organizations must be able to help people make the greatest impact possible with not only their time, but also their talent, voice and money. As the world’s leading volunteer organization with more than 20 years of history and a bipartisan legacy, Points of Light connects people to their power to create positive change and address the critical needs of our communities.

In recognizing the Lint Center for their work in the field of national security, the foundation stresses:

Drawing on his career experience as a leader in the national security and intelligence community, retired Special Agent James Lint and the Lint Center for National Security Studies are preparing the next generation of professionals to protect our nation through volunteer-based career and education programs. “It’s my mission, the mission of the Lint Center, and I hope we will complete it,” says Lint of his volunteer mentors and protégés.

From my interaction with Tim Coleman over the past two years as the Editor-in-Chief of this website, and from publishing a number of articles by Lint Center volunteers, I can attest to the fact that it is well deserved.

Well done and congratulations!
