Scholarship Description

The Synovus Bank/Calvin Smyre Endowed Scholarship is a scholarship program for Black students who attend colleges and universities within Synovus’ regional footprint of Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, and South Carolina. The program honors Calvin Smyre, a Columbus native, who represents Columbus-Muscogee County in the Georgia House of Representatives. He was elected in 1974 and is the longest-serving member of the Georgia General Assembly.

Smyre joined Synovus in 1976 as a management trainee and retired in 2014 as executive vice president of corporate affairs.

One scholarship annually will be designated for a student enrolled at Smyre’s beloved alma mater Fort Valley State University (FVSU), an HBCU in Fort Valley, Georgia, where he serves as Chairman of the FVSU Foundation.
