A native of Laurinburg, Cody grew up on St. Andrews campus. As a child, he attended swimming lessons in the campus pool, summer camps for baseball and soccer, and attended such sporting events regularly. He went on to graduate from UNC-Pembroke with a bachelor’s in Business Administration and has been a part of the Advancement Office since late 2020. As of 2022, he has helped raise over a million dollars through the support of our SAU alumni, friends, and foundations. He hopes to build on St. Andrews’s legacy and give back to the school that has offered him so much.
