Cody Sullivan graduated from Concordia University this past weekend. He’s the first student with Down syndrome to graduate college in just four years in Oregon.
Cody received a certificate of achievement in Elementary Education thanks to the West Coast Think College coalition program. The program works with colleges and universities to include students with intellectual disabilities in typical classes.
“So Cody would have his notes in class, that he’d taken before, that aligned to what we were working on, and then when we had a project, he’d be up there with a modified project that fit the requirements of what we were doing in class,” said Seth Phelps, another friend of Cody’s.
It just goes to show – #inclusiveEDworks!! Good luck on your future endeavors, Cody. (He already has his first job as a teacher’s aide in an Oregon charter school) 🙂 ❤ ❤
