If you’ve heard of the Aid to the Homeless Committee, it is likely because of Cory Eden. As soon as he joined the committee, Cory conceptualized and executed a very successful coat drive benefitting the Soup Mobile—a soup kitchen serving southeast Dallas. Now, several years later, that Coat Drive has become one of A2H’s signature events with Cory still at the helm. Cory consistently steps up to lead other volunteer events for A2H, like serving breakfast to those in need at the Cathedral of Hope.
Cory’s heart does not stop with DAYL. Cory also enjoys being active in his church, spending time with his rescue dog, Houdini, and cheering for his sports teams like the World Series Champion Atlanta Braves.
Cory is from Albuquerque, New Mexico, and graduated the University of New Mexico before receiving his Juris Doctor from Southern Methodist University. Cory is a trial attorney with experience as a prosecutor in Rockwall County and trial attorney for Allstate. Currently, Cory is an associate at Schell Cooley Campbell, where he defends doctors, nurses, and medical providers from medical malpractice claims.
These are just some of the reasons Cory is this month’s DAYL One to Watch. Congrats, Cory!
