makes a difference in the community.

At CPCC, Cordell is a fixture at service events on and off-campus, including service-learning placements at Ronald McDonald House and Samaritan’s Feet. But her passion is helping patients with low literacy navigate the healthcare system. A “literacy/patient advocate,” Cordell has spoken at universities, health centers, and conferences on the challenges related to literacy, communication, and patient safety. She is also a writer and filmmaker and is currently documenting her experience as a volunteer with Charlotte Hospice. Cordell is an English major from San Francisco.
CPCC Student Life Coordinator Jenn Marts says Cordell is both an “outstanding student” and an “outstanding woman with a heart of gold.” She says Cordell “has a sincere passion for raising awareness about the danger of low literacy for patients.”
Cordell received the award at North Carolina Campus Compact’s annual student conference. Now in its 20th year, the conference was held November 2 at CPCC in Charlotte.
