At age 17, Brice received the 16th annual Young Columbus Award, a Kansas Press Association’s Awards of Excellence from Gov. Robert Docking and a 2 week trip to Switzerland and Greece as first prize in a competition for adding the most new subscribers to his route. Later in life he began delivering the Capital-Journal again. He always took pride in anything he did. For older people on his route, he would walk the paper up to the porch, so they had easier access. Other things that Brice did on his life journey were hitchhiking to Woodstock and attending the funeral of his hero, Evel Knievel. Brice held many jobs over the years including starting his own taxi service in Marysville. Brice also co-owned and operated the Sportsman Bar & Grill. His most recent job was at Landoll Corporation.
