Cornerstone is making exciting changes that will help support our growth and goals in the coming years. This includes a few staff changes that we are thrilled to share with you.
We’re pleased to announce an expansion of our education program. Cornerstone Education Group is adding an Early Childhood Success Academy in 2020 that will enable us to serve children from Pre-K to 12th grade. Ernestine Sanders will serve as Executive Director of the Early Childhood Success Academy.
We are grateful to Ms. Sanders for serving as Interim Chief Academic Officer (CAO) for the past several months and we are excited to welcome Lisa Key, our new CAO. Ms. Key is joining Cornerstone Schools after a career spanning more than 20 years of educational leadership and social work experience.
Congratulations are also in order for Dezirae Daniels, who has been promoted to principal of Madison-Carver Academy.
Ms. Daniels holds many specialized degrees and has over 20 years of experience, including several years with Cornerstone in multiple roles from teacher to instructional coach to Dean of Academics.
We welcome and look forward to the innovative approach each of these staff members will bring to their new positions.
