Cody, who graduated from CTAHR with an Animal Science degree and is a past Ka Hana Poʻokela undergraduate award recipient, is currently pursuing a Master's in Natural Resources and Environmental Management. Her critical data collection for her research project on the migratory patterns of 'o'opu nākea showcases her drive to give back to the community by conserving Hawaiʻi’s stream ecology and preserving native fish. Cody's active roles, serving as a CTAHR Student Ambassador since she was in her sophomore year of her undergraduate studies, as president of the graduate student organization “HI Stream and Ecosystems,” and as a volunteer educating K-12 students through Nā Wai ʻEkolu, showcase her dedication to academia, stewardship, and to make a genuine impact. Congratulations Cody! Thank you for your many years of dedication to the college.
