Ralph is a student at St. Joseph that Cody especially enjoyed meeting when he went to Haiti following his high school graduation. The genuine warmth of the Haitian people and Cody's easygoing kindness were a perfect match. As soon as he heard that his mom, Valerie, was asked to join a team andcreate an art project at the school his first words were, " I want to go with mom and help the kids. I want to do something significant before I go to college."
