Senior Already An Accomplished Entrepreneur

Jade Rice

For Jade Rice, life as a Colonel is a family affair.

The senior marketing major from Richmond is soon to be a fourth-generation Eastern Kentucky University alumna. Eleven of her family members, including her parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents, have received degrees from EKU, the earliest graduating in 1948.

Family ties with the University enabled her to grow up on campus, attending EKU athletic events as well as dance camps. “Yelling ‘Go Colonels!’ at a football game was probably one of the first things in my vocabulary,” she recalled.
