We have enjoyed the performances SO much.  Corey was such a hit, and such an amazingly nice guy.  The kids loved his personality every bit as much as his tricks.  Thank you!

We recently hosted Corey the Dribbler at our Alexander Hamilton Academy .  I want to commend him on the excellence of the program.  Corey was cognizant of the attention span of our students in the younger grades and was able to change things up to ensure that they were getting the message.  In the middle school program he identified with the students and made them feel like he knew them.  He actively involves the audience through a game that requires volunteers yet allows everyone to participate.  He began the show with some of his tricks which caught everyone’s’ attention and was able to communicate his message from there. He made his assembly personal and talked about his life.  He shared setting goals and the value of respect.  He not only captured the audience but captured the staff as well.  Thank you for a great assembly program.

As part of observing Catholic Schools Week 2016, we were so grateful to have Corey The Dribbler celebrate with us.  With Corey speaking about Respect-not only of others but of self, he truly reached the students.  He also spoke of hard work and doing good onto others which is extremely important for the  developing children.  He demonstrated in many facets the hard work that he endured and he thrilled the audience with such skill.  The students, staff, and parents, thoroughly enjoyed his performance and wish the best for him too!

Corey the Dribbler was a great program here at the Camden County Juvenile Detention Center. The kids had an amazing time. Corey was so nice and very talented in his sport of basketball.  He played so many basketball games with the kids. It was good to see the kids watch and the same sport that they enjoy playing. I hope I can bring Corey back again, because he is another program the kids will like to see again. Thank You so much Corey for inspiring the kids here at Camden County Juvenile Detention Center.

5 out of 5! Too bad we can't give this assembly a 10!  The children LOVED the assembly. Every teacher made an effort to come over to us and tell us how amazing Corey was! We got emails from parents after school as well, telling us that their children couldn't stop talking about Corey!
Sharon Somekh - PFA President
Heights School

We had technical issues- speaker problems and microphone issues.  Corey was very professional and resolved them independently (we had no clue what we were doing).  He performed in front of approximately 330 kids, grades prek-6, and kept them all enthralled in his performance.  The kids loved his performance!  Thank you Corey!

This program was great. I would like to thank all you for putting on a great show for the kids here at Camden County Juvenile Detention Center. For me being an after school program coordinator at a juvenile detention center, it can be challenging at times looking for different programs that are willing to come out and service the kids here at the facility. Some programs won't because when they hear "juvenile detention center" they have a negative impression about the place. So, again I would humbly like to thank you for coming out and putting on a great show for our kids here. The staff and all the kids enjoyed the program that took place, they have been asking for you to come back already!  I do look forward to bringing you back for the next school year. Thank You!!!

Wow! Corey was fabulous. Professional, proactive, organized, engaging, funny, TALENTED, and best of all, we loved the messages he offered. In fact, since his visit yesterday, we have more than once referenced his message of giving and earning respect. We had two shows - one for Grades 1-4 and the other for Grades 5-9, and he was magnificently received by both. The students and teachers had only great comments and reflections to offer.
Kathy Kravec - Director of Plus Program

Corey arrived to our school early and eager to get started. During the assembly, he managed the students very well, entertained the students and he was very successful with engaging with our teachers. Corey's message of R.E.A.D (Respect, Education, Attitude and Don't Bully) came across loud and clear, as well impactful. He gave great examples of himself and others and the importance education plays in being successful. The commitment and determination it took to become who he is was shared and from the looks on our student's faces...they got the message!! We would LOVE to have Corey re-visit and we certainly would recommend Corey to all schools!

Rarely in my 39 years of teaching  have I encountered a more patient, engaging role model/professional athlete/educator as incredible as you!  You had their rapt attention in the best way.  Your story is more than inspiring.  The review at the end was impeccable teaching!  Your sense of humor and physical comedy is beyond compare...please know how much I LOVE and RESPECT you!  Keep going strong, young are the best of the best!

Our boys have been talking about Corey's program all afternoon! They are in awe of his skills.  To hear such positive feedback from a group of middle school boys speaks for itself.  Corey's messages about surrounding yourself with positive people, following your dreams, setting goals, and fighting through adversity was the perfect message for our boys to hear.  Fun, engaging and definitely the real deal. Thank you so much for sharing yourself with us!
