"Reed"

Reed

We know her as Nikki Grotenhuis, a 2007 Communication graduate, active member of UIndy’s Alumni Association Board of Directors and frequent guest speaker and volunteer on campus. Central Indiana radio listeners know her as Nikki Reed, afternoon drive personality and music director at WZPL-FM 99.5.

And now, readers of the Indianapolis Star know her as one of this year’s Indy Super Singles, 10 unmarried local residents who were deemed most appealing in a public contest coordinated by the newspaper. Read about her and the other Super Singles here.
