The Pillar – August 2018

 

The Pillar | August 2018
Welcome Back, Cornerstone Family!
Summer’s fading and school starts in just a few days. The Cornerstone team has been busy getting ready for our scholars to return to the classroom on September 4th.
We’re fortunate to have an amazing team of educators.
Here’s to a successful 2018 – 19 academic year!
It’s a NEW Partner Morning!
It’s almost time for Partner Morning – from September 24 through 28!
We’re changing a few things this year, even adding one more visit so our Partners get to spend time with students five times a year.
Want to join us?
Summer Events Change Lives
So many different organizations come together to do great things for Cornerstone students every year.
This summer, three of our loyal supporters hosted fundraising events and the funds raised make it possible for Cornerstone to continue to deliver an excellent education and transform students’ lives.
Thank you, Allstate!
Thank you to Allstate for being a positive force for change in our community. Livonia agent Cheryl Bowker and her colleagues gave their time and enabled us to receive an Allstate Foundation Helping Hands Grant for our Partner Morning program.
The Allstate Foundation supports the causes that Allstate agency owners, financial specialists and employees care about most by providing Helping Hands Grants to nonprofits where they volunteer their time to bring out the good in their communities.
Does your employer have a grant or donation program to benefit non-profits that are making a difference in our community? Please consider nominating Cornerstone.
Cornerstone Student Pursues His Passion as an Electrician
Justin Ford is grateful for his time at Cornerstone Health + Technology High School. Our Career Pathways helped him pursue his interest in becoming an electrician. Justin earned an OSHA certificate through technical training and is enjoying a summer position with Consolidated Electric.
He told us, “For Cornerstone to give students an opportunity to find their passion and a career goal is a big deal and I am thankful.”
