A native of Jamaica, Okine Codlyn came to Lincoln University in 2007 and immediately made an impact. As she was earning degrees in Drafting Technology and Civil Engineering Technology, Okine joined the Lincoln University Lady Blue Tiger Track and Field team where she was a standout performer; earning several All-American honors. One of her greatest athletic accomplishments came when she stood tall on the podium for her personal event- the Women's Heptathlon - at the 2008 NCAA Division II Outdoor Championships in California. Quite a feat for “Lady O”! Okine Codlyn busied herself on campus as secretary of the International Students’ Club, a Resident Assistant, and Page Library student worker. After graduating, she now lives in Atlanta where she earned a Masters in Divinity and is currently pursuing a degree in business.
