AU grad completes dissertation

CHAPEL HILL, N.C.--John Brian Heath, a 1997 graduate of Ambassador University, Big Sandy, Texas, recently completed his doctoral degree in educational leadership at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Dr. Heath's dissertation--A Study of Adolescent Leadership in a High School Setting: Implications for School Administrators --deals with the role that schools and other organizations can play in effectively developing leadership skills among teenagers, thus empowering them for positive change in society.

The dissertation's findings may be of interest to those who work with church youth groups and youth-based humanitarian organizations, Dr. Heath said.

His data were collected through a series of interviews with university students who had served as district officers of Key Club International, a high-school service organization sponsored by Kiwanis International.
