For Senior Cody Baxter, a life-of-the-party type of kid, going to college is the adventure he’s looking for. Baxter will be going to Bethel College to play football and pursuing a Bachelor’s degree majoring in business. After college, Baxter plans to start a hunting and guiding business with friends who live near Emporia. The business will be a hunting show. For now, the episodes will be strictly on YouTube but other networks are in the future.

“TV. That’s our goal,” said Baxter.

He plans to continue living in Emporia. Baxter’s soon to be coworkers are only a short drive away so he feels this will be the best decision for his future. Realizing soon he’ll be five hours away, Baxter thought about his classmates.

“We’ve been on a journey since kindergarten till now. I’ll miss most of my class so much.”

Being in a room surrounded by he and his buddies makes it clear to see that they have a connection. For many of the boys they have been friends since the beginning.

“Our families have been close forever. We just feed off each other’s energy,” said Senior Connor Keller.

Baxter is one who not only keeps his friends easily but also makes them with ease.

Senior Richard Johnson, who has lived in Saint Francis for just over one year said, “Even though I haven’t known him forever, we have some of the funniest stories. Cody is a ball of fire.”

Around SFCHS, Baxter is known for his energy. During football, wrestling, and track, he assists the team by, not only, playing well but also keeping spirits high. Throughout class, he brightens his peers’ days with his expressive personality and sense of humor.  

“Cody keeps you on your toes. He has an irrepressible sense of humor,” said History Teacher Steve Jenkins.

Baxter’s biggest inspiration has been his mom.

“She’s really tough. She raised two boys by herself,” said Baxter.  

Cody Baxter’s daily energy shows his ambition to get things done. He is inspired to be successful in his new career venture like his mom, Judy Baxter, who’s put in time and effort to go through schooling to become a successful veterinarian.

“She works hard everyday and never complains. I try to work hard and not complain too,” said Baxter.
