Heath Rice, Arts and Entertainment Editor

Heath Rice has lived in Iowa his entire life, but his growing passion for writing has given him an edge to more fulfilling experiences than the average Iowan. At the young age of seventeen, Heath has advanced experience in party planning, story writing and theatre. As a senior in high school, his ability to balance work and school makes him a qualified candidate for many colleges and job positions thus far. Heath plans on attending the University of Saint Ambrose in Davenport, Iowa in hopes of a scholarship and the ability to represent his future school playing video games. At home, Heath lives with his mom, dad, brother and grandma. There, he spends his time running a Bible study Tik Tok page where he reads excerpts from the religious text promoting a positive, safe environment. Additionally, Heath collects a plethora of comic books, horror movies and movie statues that allow him to grow his knowledge on many different platforms. Heath’s interactions with various different groups through work and school allow him to communicate effectively. With this in mind, he hopes to pursue a career in teaching or biblical studies in the future. Heath has been writing for many years and recently has started his own story called “Bar on 34th Street.” He hopes to finish the novel and have it published eventually. Heath has the desire to bring his strong writing skills and personality to the Spartan Shield this fall.
