Recently named a Woman of Distinction by the Midday Women’s Alliance, trailblazer Cody Splitt ’49 became interested in the law at an early age.
“ During the Great Depression, there was never an extra dime for picture shows, so Cody’s mother sent her down to the courthouse in Wausau to watch the drama in the court room. She thought those men in light-colored summer suits on boiling hot summer days, arguing their positions, was truly an elegant sight. She raced home declaring she would be a lawyer when she grew up.”
