Meet Katie Rice

Katie is one of the recipients of the Linda & Thomas Talbott Scholarship.

Katie is from Raymore, Missouri and is currently a freshman pre-pharmacy major at UMKC. She says that she chose this field because she has a passion for medicine and has seen firsthand how much medication can change a person’s life. She hopes to use her career as a way to be a positive part of someone else’s journey. Over the summer Katie plans to take some classes, as well as work and study for the PCAT. In her free time, she enjoys going to the gym and spoiling her cat. Katie says that her favorite thing about being a member of the Honors College is meeting new people and that she has met many of her “best friends through being in the Honors College and I’m incredibly thankful!”
