It all started as I was in my first year of the Upward Bound program. I really didn't know anyone. So I thought I would take up opportunity to suck up, err uh, and get to know central staff. As scary as Kori seemed, I got to know him as well as Phil and Brenda (at the time). I would get things for Kori as he asked and it just seemed to stick, and I was deemed understudy. Of course, living in Maryville I could stop by the UB office whenever I wanted, so when I came up the steps and through the office, Kori was always the first one to see me, as he has the prime office that could spot me from fifty feet away. He didn't seem as excited to see me. I also remember Kori coining the term “Ricka-bow-bow-chica-bow-wow” but don’t quote me on spelling. Oh yeah and he always told me that he will go on trip this year, too. Oh well I guess that won’t happen. All in all, Kori is always someone you can turn to, he is full of helpful advice. But don’t miss him too much, he’s not too far away, second floor of the J.W. Jones Student Union. Go visit him, I know I will!
