Kori is an excellent individual both on and off the basketball court. Kori has proven to be the most dedicated student athletes in the After School All-Stars (ASAS) program. Our ASAS partners provide children of our community a safe space to learn, grow, and achieve. With great enthusiasm and dedication, Kori has shined in Basketball and his English and Language Arts class. Kori’s teacher says that since the moment he walked into her class he started to ask about joining the basketball team. There is nothing that can stop Kori from achieving his dream to play basketball, “even practicing outside in all the weather elements” says his teacher.  

At United Way of Southern Nevada, we partner with organizations like After School All-Stars to ensure that all kids in our community get the chance to reach their dreams. Thanks to this partnership, Kori was able to play on his first basketball team at the first organized basketball game for ASAS club team ‘BYB Knights’. Kori, is an all-star student who shows up ready to work hard to earn high marks, and still has time to help others.
