About the Author

My name is Cory Mcliechey. I was born February 9th of 1973 in Grand Rapids, MI. I am the youngest of nine siblings. I come from a loving two parent home that instilled the values and principles in me that I hold near and dear to this day and that have also helped me become the entrepreneur that I am. I am the owner of ‘Top Notch Painting LLC’ and president of ‘Descendants of the Truth Foundation’; a nonprofit organization whose sole agenda is to educate the youth on their history while teaching them life skills.

I have been a community advocate and activist for many years following in the footsteps of my ancestors. My brother, Ben Mcliechey, and I created a Stop the Violence Movement many years ago. This movement was inspired by the Hip Hop group known as BDP or ‘Boogie Down Productions’ curated by none other than KRS1. The movement has grown into what is now known as the ‘Top Notch Kids Agenda’. Our motto is ‘We don’t kill with guns, we build with guns’. The children are our future and our goal is to help them understand themselves as well as identify a career path and equip them with the necessary skillset to pay the bills!
