About Bryce Foshee

Junior Bryce Foshee joined The Feather his freshman year with a crippling fear of starting conversations. Student journalism compelled him to interview over a hundred of his peers, teachers, community leaders, and industry professionals. Foshee hopes to continue to share meaningful stories which uniquely arise from high school experiences. The central story in Foshee’s life is his faith, which he strives to live out by 1 Peter 1: 22, “... Love one another deeply, from the heart.” Among many other interests, Foshee builds rockets from scratch, and hopes to encourage classmates to join him in reaching for the sky.
