RALEIGH — North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper has appointed Cody Davis (‘18) to the N.C. Commission for the Blind.
Davis, who currently serves as the Wallace Public Service Fellow at Campbell Law School, was appointed as a recipient of vocational rehabilitation services, according to a press release announcing the governor’s latest appointments to state boards and commissions.
“As a former client, I’m looking forward to the opportunity to give back to the DSB, which has been instrumental in helping me earn my undergraduate, graduate, and law degrees and ultimately my law license,” Davis said.
The N.C. Commission for the Blind advises the N.C. Division of Services for the Blind (DSB). DSB provides services to blind, visually impaired and deaf-blind individuals, including independent living, vocational rehabilitation, and medical eye care services.
Before being appointed to the Commission, Davis volunteered as a speaker for some of the Division’s vocational rehabilitation programs.
He is also an active member of the Wake Federation of the Blind and the N.C. Federation of the Blind, where he chairs the Guide Dog Committee.
A member of the North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA), Davis was recognized at the NCBA Annual Meeting in June for his contributions to the law school’s Pro Bono Council Service Animal Project, which received the Law School Pro Bono Service Award.
Davis serves on the Board of Directors for Reentry, Inc., a non-profit providing Teen Court programs and pretrial release services in Wake County, and volunteers as a judge for Capital Area Teen Court.
In addition to earning his JD at Campbell Law in 2018, Davis earned is Master of Public Administration (MPA) from N.C. State University in 2017 and a bachelor’s degree from NCSU in political science, philosophy and criminology in 2014.
