2018 PDSA Recipient - Morgan Rice

Morgan Rice

Morgan Rice

Brookfield, Ohio | Finance Major, Premedical Studies Co-Major

During the fall semester of her junior year, Morgan Rice began volunteering at the City of Oxford Fire Department. Her nominator wrote that she took this volunteer opportunity more seriously than any other student volunteer he has worked with there. While still a full time student at Miami, Morgan took additional classes to become licensed as both an EMT and a level one firefighter. Her ability to relate with student patients sets her well apart from others on the staff.

On campus, Morgan is finishing her second year as a HAWKS peer health educator, where she present on health-related topics to various student organizations at Miami and coordinates staffing and scheduling for the HAWKS team. She was instrumental in setting up the Just Call Panel after the alcohol-related death on campus mentioned in another recipient’s biography.

On top of these two contributions to our community, Morgan is also a varsity hurdler on Miami’s track and field team.
