What words of advice does Cody Rader have for you?

Cody Rader enrolled in Digital Design as an Alva High School senior.  Upon high school graduation Cody attended Northwestern Oklahoma State University (NWOSU) in Alva where he graduated with a Mass Communications degree and a love for all things video.  Cody was able to combine that love of video and his passion for motocross racing and turn it into a career.  He currently works for Ajax Motorsports in Oklahoma City.  His passion for video and the Go Bless Be Blessed organization has even led him to do work in Guatemala.  You can also check out his YouTube channel to view a few of his projects.
