Nathan Gale
University of New Mexico

Nathan Gale graduated from Belén High School in central New Mexico in 2012. That fall he accepted the Command Leadership Scholarship at Detachment 510 of Air Force ROTC to study nuclear engineering at the University of New Mexico. From May 2013 to June 2015, he took a leave of absence to serve as a proselyting missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in southern Mexico. Since August 2015, he has continued studying while taking on leadership roles in ROTC. Last June he began work as a lab assistant for Dr. Adam Hecht whose research focuses on radiation detection and environmental effects of radiation. Upon commissioning in the Air Force, Nathan plans to attend the Air Force Institute of Technology to earn a master’s degree in nuclear engineering. He hopes to work in nuclear non-proliferation and waste management in his future.
