“Bay College was a perfect way for me to get my feet wet with school again after taking a break after high school. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to further my education,” he said.
In addition to his schooling, Harrington is on the Bay College Norse baseball team.
“Dan is a fantastic young man with so much dedication. He is a great asset to the team, and I m confident he will have a successful future,” said Mike Pankow, head baseball coach.
In April, Harrington will earn an associate in science degree from Bay College. He plans to continue his education toward a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry, but is still deciding which university he will attend. His career path stems from his desire to understand the world and the role human beings play in it.
