Rita Johnson, HCAA Secretary


Honors College Class of 1998, BS in Nutrition

The Honors College at UIC promotes academic excellence. The laureates of this program learn the tools to exceed in any endeavor they choose. I am looking to support Honors College students through my participation in the Honors College Alumni Board by helping to create opportunities for personal and professional growth beyond academia.

As a member of the Honors College Alumni Board, I plan to work towards establishing a stronger connection between Honors College alumni and students through mentoring programs. I also plan on helping to create a greater media presence for the Honors College in order to promote support for the organization from both alumni and the community.

I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1998. I work as a financial adviser in my family owned business Your Broker Financial and am currently pursuing a Master of Business Administration degree.
