Cody Vasquez Named 2020 National COY

Mar 09, 2020 – Cody Vasquez, Angelo State (TX), was announced as the National Collegian of the Year at the South Central LEAD Provincial Conference.

He was recognized for exemplifying the spirit of Delta Sigma Pi through his time in college, garnering the top honor for collegiate members. Cody's involvement in the Fraternity spans across numerous executive positions including: chapter webmaster, vice president-pledge education, senior vice president and president (his current position). He also is a Deltasig For Life Donor, served on the Ritual Team at Grand Chapter Congress in Atlanta, and was Southwestern Regional Collegian of the Year in 2019.

"During my time with Eta Theta Chapter, I have been able to start a new beginning for the organization at Angelo State," says Cody. "I was a part of a massive movement of improving, re-establishing and growth for the chapter as a whole. Through my positions and true dedication, it gave me the opportunity and motivation to strengthen business school relations, improve recruitment and the overall brotherhood feeling, and truly establish the Fraternity as a respected and prestigious organization at Angelo State."

2019 COY Kristen Wilhelm, 2020 COY Cody Vasquez and 2018 COY Travis Brodbeck.

Vasquez will begin his two-year term on the Delta Sigma Pi Board of Directors beginning in August and is eager to hit the ground running. "As the 2020 COY, there are multiple initiatives I plan to touch upon, but my main focus would be diversity within Delta Sigma Pi. I want to assist with our commitment to diversity on the local and national levels. Having inclusion trainings at conferences or making recruitment material appealing to students of different ethnicities and backgrounds, are just some ideas I want to implement.

Outside of Delta Sigma Pi, Cody serves as the alumni recruitment chair for the Association of Mexican-American Students, is a college transition leader for incoming first-year college students, a representative for the Multicultural Advisory Council and a representative for the Student Organization Advisory Council. Currently, he works as an Activities Manager for Angelo State's Multicultural & Student Activities Programs office. Cody is looking forward to graduation in May of this year, after which he will continue his education pursuing a Ph.D., with a focus on high-level project management, event coordination or leadership instruction.

Congratulations, Cody!
