Quote from teacher: "Cory defines what it is to be an involved student," said Scott Burns, humanities teacher. "My experience with him as a student and as a student government member have convinced me that there are few students as committed to getting the most out of high school experience as Cory. He is bright, energetic, and ambitious."
