Under Corey’s leadership, Canine Companions has grown and excelled. The Canine Companions training program has moved forward, tripling the number of teams graduating and increasing income from $1 million to over $19 million annually. We can’t thank Corey enough for his service and commitment to people with disabilities.
Tomorrow, as we celebrate National Graduation Day across the country, we also celebrate Corey’s enduring legacy and a new era of executive leadership under Paul Mundell.
