Student Success Stories: Bryce Whitsett

Congratulations GRCC graduate Bryce Whitsett.  Both Bryce’s parents were first generation college students who earned associate degrees from GRCC, so he always knew community college was in his future. He began college in 8th grade to get a head start on his education.

“I got really inspired at the beginning of this year when I figured out I could graduate with my associate degree before the end of my junior year in high school,” said Whitsett, who plans to transfer to MIT or UofM and major in computer science.
