In 2006, Korey's academic achievements were recognised by being awarded the prestigious Colgan Scholarship for all-round excellence in Year 11. The Principal of Kelston Boys High School could not recommend a more deserving candidate saying Korey is "a consistently high achiever, a naturally gifted sportsperson and a most conscientious student who is always highly motivated, organised and focused with real determination to excel to his very best potential."

Korey's ability to manage his time and interests was noted by Veda Advantage who was impressed with Kory. Marketing Manager at the time Shelley Hughes said "we felt Korey was an ideal fit for our organisation."

Korey's excellent work ethic at school set him up to excel in the Bachelor of Commerce at The University of Auckland.

Korey graduated in 2012 with First Class Honours and started at Fonterra in August 2013 in Product Mix Optisation Graduate programme.

In October 2015 Korey travelled to London and worked there for 4 months before volunteering on Hillary Clinton's 2016 Campaign travelling throughout the US.
