I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and let you get to know me better. My name is Cody McCreedy, and I am currently a Junior at Iowa State University, studying History and Secondary Education and pursuing a minor in Political Science. I am originally from Atlantic, a small town in Southwest Iowa, roughly halfway between Des Moines and Council Bluffs (when traveling on Interstate 80). Growing up on a small farm was hard, but it allowed me to develop a strong worth ethic and critical personal skills: problem-solving, time-management, patience, hard work, and responsibility. I graduated from Atlantic High School in 2018, ranking in the top 10 of my class academically, and I was a member of my school’s National Honor Society.
While in college, I have been involved in many organizations, including the Salt Company, and I’m a proud member of the Theta Delta Chi B^ Chapter. This year I was honored to be elected as our chapter’s scholarship chair. Our house obtained the most significant increase in GPA among all the ISU Fraternity chapters under my leadership. I’ve had many jobs and leadership positions in my lifetime, but currently, I serve as a Legislative Clerk at the Iowa House of Representatives for District 54 Representative Shannon Latham. As a clerk, my duties include researching various bills, topics, and other material to communicate with my representative, and I complete multiple projects and research in short periods of time.
As your IFC Senator, I will strive to increase communications across campus, along with individual fraternities. We have a current problem with our communication across Greek Life, and once we fix this, we can look into other issues across Greek Land. As members of the Student Government Senate, we also need to be smart with the student fees we collect to help benefit the student body and organizations across campus. Furthermore, mental health is a big issue that sits close to my heart. All students should have the proper resources available to them here on campus, including individuals in Greek Life. These individuals need to feel as welcome at this University as all other students. This applies to minority students as well. Lastly, I am always open to new ideas and will listen to anyone, within Greek Land or not, if they have ideas regarding making our campus better.
