Mine Center, he was able to graduate from St. Andrews Episcopal School in Potomac, Md.
In 2007, Nate graduated cum laude with a BA in political science from Morehouse College,
in Atlanta, GA, where he was an Oprah Winfrey Scholar and an African Presidential Fellow.
Nathan was the Executive Director of the Morehouse College Student Government
Association, Vice President of the Atlanta University Center Council of Students, and Vice
