Korey joined our Penick Club when he was 8. When the Music My Way program began, he was 14. For his last 4 years as a club member, he became the Band Leader for the annual 501kids
Summer Showcase and performed with other Boys and Girls Club teens at Juanita's, and the Revolution Music Room.
After graduating, he began teaching in the Clubs, sharing his wisdom and expertise with members from all of our 7 clubs.
Now, he sets out to distinguish himself as one of the finest musicians in the world by continuing his education at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. He was accepted in December and has received help toward his tuition as an award for his original composition as seen in the video. The audio for the video was recorded at the Boys and Girls Club Studio, located in our Billy Mitchell Unit, where Korey has had the unique opportunity to learn industry standard software like ProTools and Reason.
Korey thanks the Boys and Girls Club of Central Arkansas for giving him opportunities that helped him to reach his full potential in growing to become a better musician and a more caring and responsible person.
