A student in Oregon just made history after becoming the first person with Down syndrome to complete four years of college in the state. Cody Sullivan graduated from Concordia University with a certificate of achievement in Elementary Education, thanks to the West Coast Think College coalition program, which works with colleges and universities to include students with intellectual disabilities in regular classes.
“I took math and health, and all my classes,” Cody says. “I loved math.”
And unlike a lot of college grads, Cody already has a job. He’s working as a teacher’s aide for a local charter school. Congratulations!
