LCM 2022 Graduating Senior – Natalie Gates

My name is Natalie Gates and I have been part of Lutheran Campus Ministry for the past four years. I am originally from Helena Montana and was drawn to Bozeman for the mountains and family. I am graduating this spring in Elementary Education with a reading focus and plan to attend Speech Pathology graduate school in the near future! I have spent these past few summers at Flathead Lutheran Bible Camp as a camp counselor as well as a teacher in southwest Kenya this last summer. These experiences have allowed me to appreciate education in diverse environments and have been a leading factor in my desire to teach abroad come fall. I am so thankful for the individuals that have formed a foundation and community for my faith to grow within my college experience and for that I will always have an appreciation and admiration for all that LCM is and provides!
