Cody Elementary Achievement Scholarship
Cody Elementary is in the heart of Scott County along Territorial Road. Our oldest school, Cody was originally a part of the LeClaire Township School District before joining the Pleasant Valley School District in 1962. Thousands of students started their pursuit of excellence at Cody Elementary. This scholarship honors such a student and is chosen by the Administration/Counseling Office.
