This was his class.....
During the graduation ceremony This was his counselor....He was part of the Port Authority Police.
And his bunk where he slept.
Cody will never forget First Sargent........He was one tough cookie. But this was the only time that Cody cried during the ceremony........He gave the cadets the most awesome talk at graduation. He told them that they thought this was the hard part, but the hard part is just beginning. Living the things out that they have learned in the real world. Respecting others, respecting yourself, leaving your past behind and beginning a whole new chapter. It was so inspiring. He is such a fantastic guy.
So compare this photo to the one that I took by the sign when we dropped him off. Check out the pride and self esteem in this one. Pride in earning the right to wear the black uniform.
Way to go CODY (Cadet McKelvey)
