Cordy McJunkins is currently a graduate school student at Stanford University pursuing a master’s in education policy, organization, and leadership and a second master's in public policy. His interests focus on education system reform, more specifically, how the education field can be more collaborative in its efforts rather than competitive. In the future, Cordy hopes to work on the legal aspects of education and find new ways to provide equitable outcomes for all students.
