Nathan is from Louisville and graduated from Centre in 2022 with a B.A. in International Studies and Spanish. His studies abroad in South Africa, Peru, Mexico, and Colombia were critical for his understanding of experiential and place-based learning. These travels inspired his work as an AmeriCorps member, planning service-learning trips to Louisville, Frankfort, and the Appalachian region of Kentucky. As a student, Nathan led several student organizations, including the Gardening Club, where he discovered his passion for food systems and anti-hunger initiatives.
Nation joined the Office of Civic & Community Engagement in 2022 as an AmeriCorps member, then in August 2023 was hired as the Assistant Director of Civic and Community Engagement & the Bonner Program.
