As Grand Valley State University alumna, this story definitely caught my eye!

Glenn Duffie Shriver, of Jenison, was sentenced to four years in prison in 2011 for spying for China.

The 32-year-old Shriver studied abroad in Shanghai through GVSU and became close with Chinese officials while he attended East China Normal University.

He was arrested by the FBI in 2010 and eventually pleaded guilty to federal charges of conspiring to provide national defense information to Chinese intelligence officers. Court records show he took $70,000 from Chinese officials in three payments as he attempted to secure jobs with the CIA and as a foreign service officer with the U.S. State Department.

Now, Shriver and the FBI are using his story to warn other students of the dangers of falling prey to foreign intelligence schemes and have created a video titled "Game of Pawns: The Glenn Duffie Shriver Story."
