DENVER, N.C.––She is among the best and brightest in the class of 2019.

She is Jordan Cody of Denver. And according to guidance adviser Pamela Black of North Lincoln High, Cody is in the top 10 of the class of ’19. Black said this week that the school’s val and sal won’t officially be known until just before graduation. But Cody, 18, is among North Lincoln’s top seniors.

The daughter of Stephen and Crystal Cody, she is also the sister of Brittany Cody. Jordan Cody told The Herald more about herself Friday. This included some reminiscences about her favorite classes, teachers and experiences.

“Some of my favorite classes have been AP (advanced-placement) government and politics, AP American history, AP calculus BC and AP language and composition,” she said. “AP government led me to my intended major, and I truly enjoyed the material I was exposed to during my AP language course. I am mainly focused on social sciences. But Mrs. Tapp made me love calculus and supported my college choices, despite being an N.C. State fan!

“My favorite teachers have been Lindsay Fier (AP language and composition), Raquel Ferreyra Ocharán (Spanish I-III), Breanna Tapp (AP calculus BC) and Brett Furguson (AP literature and composition),” she continued. “Mrs. Ocharán made my Spanish classes extremely fun, and I always looked forward to attending her class every day. Mr. Furguson is unlike any teacher I have ever had, and he has truly inspired me to enjoy literature and continue to further my education.”

Cody was involved in various school-based clubs, including the National Honor Society, the Beta and Spanish clubs, Habitat for Humanity, the Guiding Knights mentor program and student government.

“Outside of school,” she said, “I participated in the annual pancreatic cancer walk in memory of my grandmother.”

Cody said she’ll always treasure her memories of North Lincoln High.

“I will remember the time I have spent making new friends and bonding over workloads,” she said. “Many of my best memories are related to my favorite teachers and the activities I was able to partake in during their classes, such as conducting a mock election or carrying out structured debates.”

Come August, Cody will be off to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She plans to major in political science and minor in philosophy.

“I hope to attend law school,” she said, “and potentially become a human rights attorney or a U.S. attorney.”

And of the classes of 2019 and ’20, Cody had this to say:

“The class of ’19 is a varied group of creative and determined individuals,” she observed. “We have a spirit of healthy competition, and we support one another through times of grief and life-changing decisions.

“Always look out for yourself,” she continued, advising the next group of seniors, “and take classes that are the best for you and not just to be with your friends. North Lincoln has so many great courses, exciting opportunities and wonderful teachers that will absolutely prepare you for college and life in general. Making sure you are prepared for those classes is essential for succeeding and rising through class rank, if you choose to do so.”
