The son of an immigrant from Mexico, Cody is only second person in his family to go to college.
Growing up, Cody’s grandfather taught him that nothing is more important than education. Cody’s high school guidance counselor helped him to apply for college scholarships, and he won a full ride to Metro Community College’s automotive technology program.
The program is preparing him for a job after graduation, with all the expectations of a full-time job and the chance to work with real customers. Cody also tutors his classmates because the Metro program is challenging and Cody is invested in not only his success, but others’, too.
