Cornerstone Prep is a college prep school. Our motto is College Prepared. Life Equipped. We have several goals for our graduates. Three of those are:
“We came up with the idea of painting mugs to keep in our Senior Corner. One of the many things that Cornerstone Prep instills within us is to serve others and always give back, so we decided to do just that,” said senior Kaitlin Williams, “Much like teenagers can get a bad reputation for being irresponsible and immature, lately, police officers have been getting similar negative publicity. We decided to handpack 315 goody bags each with a handwritten note for every officer at the Dallas Police Department and the Paulding County Sheriff's Office.
“Even while shopping for items to put in the bags, we were able to share with others what we were doing and why. Some were so moved by our actions that they donated money to help pay for the treats. We thought it would be a great way to show the officers love and appreciation for putting their lives on the line daily to keep everyone safe.”
Senior Katina Heitz said, “It's not very often that we can get the majority of the senior girls together, and since we had the opportunity we want to not only fellowship with each other, but also give back to the community."
These young ladies set an excellent example of Christ-like behavior for their peers, our Cornerstone family, and the community. Their actions demonstrate our 2016-2017 theme verse correctly:
Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. Colossians 2.7
Parent Carrie Williams expressed her admiration of the girl's selfless service and appreciation of how Kaitlin’s years at Cornerstone Prep had instilled in her a love of service. “I was very proud of them and super impressed. Thank you and all Cornerstone has done to get them ready to go and make a difference in this world!”
We thought it would be a great way to show the officers love and appreciation for putting their lives on the line daily to keep everyone safe.
