Why did you choose the University of Arkansas?
“I chose Arkansas because of the people that make up the campus and community family. I knew that by attending the UofA, I would be surrounded by people who supported me, encouraged me to be my best self, and would be lifelong friends and mentors. The Arkansas fan base and community are so unique in their shared love for the hogs and their bond with one another. By choosing Arkansas, I realized I would not only be getting a great education, but would be able to make amazing memories, build relationships, and grow as a person in ways that would carry on with me long after graduating. ”
Katie was born in South Bend, Indiana and is the daughter of Chris Kertzman and Lori Ladd.
