“My time at Cornerstone has groomed me to be the most impactful and effective leader that I can be. I feel like my life will be changed forever. I believe that I will be sought out by organizations and businesses to lead and develop leaders all because of my choice to attend Cornerstone and pursue an M.A. in Organizational Leadership”

– Shaq Anthony, M.A.’18

“The Ed.D. program at Cornerstone gave me the flexibility to move toward that goal of earning a doctorate while still being able to work. I can continue to develop in the workplace, when most people who go for a doctorate degree get so caught up in research that they lose focus of the practical problems. Everyday, we can utilize the skills we’ve learned.”

– Patrice Johnson, Ed.D. ‘18

“What I liked about Cornerstone was that in our classes, they taught you how to be a leader and what leadership really means from a Christian perspective.”

– Shenique White, B.S.’17
