Kody Blois was born and raised in Kings-Hants.
He grew up in the small community of Belnan, just outside of Elmsdale. Kody credits his value of hard work to being raised in a working-class family – both his father and grandfather worked in the trucking industry. Kody’s mother, Shelley, is an administrative assistant at Maple Ridge Elementary School. Kody’s father, Gordon, passed away in an accident in 2005.
Kody was the first member of his family to graduate from university. He holds a Bachelor of Commerce with a minor in political science from Saint Mary’s University, and a Juris Doctor (Law) and Master of Management in Public Administration from Dalhousie University. Kody is currently working with McInnes Cooper as an articled clerk.
Kody was a draft pick for the Halifax Mooseheads in 2008 and was twice named CIS Academic All-Canadian for maintaining a strong GPA while playing as a varsity athlete for Brock and Saint Mary’s Universities.
Being involved in sports has helped shape the person Kody is today. Throughout his life, Kody has been involved with the East Hants Minor Hockey Association. It was through coaching that Kody began to make contributions to his community. He values the experience he gained and the opportunity to mentor youth through sport.
