We love when we have the chance to catch up with some of our former Cornerstone Cougars! In the months ahead we look forward to updating you on several former Cornerstone alumni. If you are a former Cougar and would like to participate in an Alumni Spotlight, click here.
Today we shine the spotlight on former Cornerstone student Chase Campbell. Marietta resident and Cornerstone Alumnus Chase Campbell (‘10) has been abundantly blessed since graduating from Cornerstone. Read below as he reflects on how God’s been working in his life and how the University-Model® of school prepared him for college and beyond.
“The one thing that will remain constant throughout all of the changes and decisions you will have to make is the Lord.”
What did you pursue after attending Cornerstone?
I received my Mechatronics Engineering Degree in 2016 from Southern Polytechnic State University (now Kennesaw State University). I then worked at two local engineering companies and now work for Vanderlande Industries here in Marietta, GA as an engineer.
How did the University-Model® of school prepare you for life after high school?
Cornerstone prepared me by allowing me to get used to a self-disciplined schedule where I learned to manage my own time and workload. This translated really well to a college environment where your success heavily relies on self-management.
How have you seen God working in your life since graduation?
God has blessed me and my family in so many ways since graduating from Cornerstone. I was able to meet my lovely wife, Kelcie, through family and friends in Tennessee, and we now have a little boy, Jackson. We were also able to find an incredible church home in the area where we have met an incredible community of believers to help others know God, find freedom, discover their purpose, and make a difference throughout our city and the globe.
What advice would you share with current students?
Everything can so easily become overwhelming when in school. The one thing that will remain constant throughout all of the changes and decisions you will have to make is the Lord. Looking back, THAT was the ONE thing that allowed me to be where I am today! Not the grades (good or bad), not the extracurricular activities, not my friends, not the college I went to, or my degree, but simply my striving for a relationship with Jesus. Even when things got tough or He felt far, He always proved His love. So no matter what, always pursue Jesus and everything else will fall into place.
