Cody Coppinger – JC Character Award

I would like to nominate Cody Coppinger for a Character Award. He has been on campus less than one week but today has demonstrated many virtues such as caring, consideration, dependability, encouragement, helpfulness , loyalty, thoughtfulness and unselfishness in response to his barrack buddy’s illness. After leaving his roommate in the care of the clinic, he has returned several times to check on him including to bring him food even when that meant standing in chow line twice to obtain official permission for a take- out meal. He then went back to the barracks and cleaned their room and washed his buddy’s clothes. As director of health services, I have been concerned about our students who develop flu-like symptoms but with a “flu buddy” like this young man, I have confidence that our cadets will take care of each other.
