Becoming A Trailblazer in Intelligence and Counter Intelligence
Kim Toler became the 1st graduate of the Masters of Arts in Security Studies (MAISS). She is following in the footsteps of her father, Eric Toler, a veteran of 27 years in military intelligence.
"I feel very honored to be the first graduate of the MAISS program. There are not many people who can say that they were the first to finish a graduate program. I consider it to be a special achievement. However, I did not progress through the program alone. The rest of my cohort played a major role. We supported each other through thick and thin. I would not be here without them!"
