Alabama Public Television Young Heroes of 2002

Cody Browning

Echola, Alabama
Echola School

Bi-weekly treatments and medications with awful side effects wouldn't keep this young man from being a source of great inspiration. Surmounting a battle with cancer would be just the beginning of Cody's tour de force. Throughout his treatment, Cody worked diligently to keep up with his class, opting to take home assignments early so that they could be completed on time. Cody has received many awards during his school career including Student of the Month, Most Outstanding Student, Presidential Award, and Most Outstanding Eighth Grader. He has remained on the "A" and "A/B" honors roll in spite of health issues. One of Cody's teachers had this to say, "Cody makes me want to strive to be a great teacher for such a great student."
