CONYERS— Bryce Joyce, a senior at Rockdale County High School, received the Polly Hinde scholarship in the amount of $5,000 from the Georgia United Foundation earlier this month.

Joyce serves as president of the RCHS Voice Club, which promotes healthy lifestyles among teens by bringing awareness to topics such as bullying prevention, domestic violence and human trafficking.

In addition, Joyce is a debate team member and actively volunteers in community food drives and at the Conyers-Rockdale Council of the Arts.

Joyce will attend Georgia Southern University in the fall to pursue a degree in biomedical engineering preparing for his career ambition of engineering prosthetic limbs, organs and stem cells to improve the quality of life of those in his community. 

“We are proud to award scholarships to students who are pursuing higher education and are impressed by the creativity and commitment of these aspiring future professionals,” said Debbie Smith, president and CEO of Georgia United Credit Union.

This marks the 25th year of the Georgia United Foundation scholarship program. Each year four deserving high school seniors are awarded scholarships based on a video submission, academic accomplishments and leadership and participation in both school and community activities.
