John M. Chikuma (D.D.S. ’49), of Brighton, Colo., was awarded a Rinehart Medallion for philanthropy. His name was inadvertently omitted from the list. Dr. Chikuma is pictured below (c) with Dr. Robert Peterson (L) and Dr. Michael Reed.

James C. Suite (D.D.S. ’70, ORT ’76) was unable to attend the 2004 Rinehart Breakfast and did NOT receive his medallion at that time. The award will be made at a future date.

Rice (M.A. ’89), an associate professor in the UMKC Department of Oral Pathology, Radiology and Medicine, (pictured above on the right with Dr. Michael Reed) was named the 2004 recipient of the ADEA/GlaxoSmithKline Sensodyne Excellence in Teaching Award during the opening session of the annual meeting of the American Dental Education Association, March 6, 2004, in Seattle, Wash. The award honors individuals "who are committed to principles of lifelong learning, demonstrate creativity in curriculum design or innovation in the delivery of education to students, and are regarded by their peers as excellent educators." Winners receive a grant to be used for educational training or to enhance their teaching efforts.
"GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare believes that the future of the dental profession and the health of the patients they treat rest in the hands of those who bring innovation and creativity to the educational experience,” said Dr. Ronald Rupp, senior manager of professional relations at GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare. “We are proud to partner with ADEA to recognize this year’s winner. Dr. Rice personifies the award’s purpose and meaning through his dedication to educating tomorrow’s dental practitioners and leaders."
