Reactions to Corey’s presentations

I thought the presentation was amazing and very inspiring. Mr. Pegues shows that the sky is the limit with determination and hard work.

Corey Pegues tells a fascinating story of the complexities of living in two worlds. His story shows that people don’t neatly break down into good and bad, that to be human is to have the capacity to change, and one of the most important places to remember this is in the criminal justice system.

Corey’s presentation allowed me to gain a better understanding of who he is and how he interacts with people. It expanded on his wonderful book and allowed me to further understand his story and think critically about necessary changes in today’s law enforcement.

Listening to Corey Pegues, tell his life story of true transformation and our society, will stick with me forever. I am proud of him for making his voice heard, so that some other young man, will know, HE Can Do It too.
