Trustee Emeritus Kenneth Fong Scholar

It feels a bit strange to look back at my life and see how much it has changed.

​​Nathaniel Morgan spent much of his childhood living out of a car and in homeless shelters. Although he struggled in school, his involvement in the Educational Opportunity Program in community college gave him the confidence to succeed academically. Working as a tutor and teaching assistant, Nathaniel learned to appreciate his teachers and the importance of education.

​​As a biological sciences major at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, Nathaniel has embraced the opportunity to participate in research opportunities. He is interested in community involvement and giving back through volunteering. He has served as a science and math tutor and assisted students applying for college.

​​Nathaniel has always been passionate about biology. With the help of professors who have involved him in their work, he continues to pursue research opportunities with the goal of earning a master’s degree in population genetics.​
