Nathanael Harrington’s ’15 story is certainly not what he had originally planned. Nathanael began his Vanguard experience as a freshman in the fall of 1998. He continued his studies until the spring of 2001. From 2001 until 2013, Nathanael served in the National Guard, and it was at this point that his life took another turn. Nathanael was diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease, an incurable that causes breakdown of the nerves cells in the brain. The disease is inherited, with no cure. Nathanael returned to Vanguard, and completed his degree in May 2015. He and his wife, along with their four children are fighting to help raise awareness of the disease – and pray for a breakthrough in research.
