Dear Alumni, honor as a characteristic suggests integrity and honesty. Honor as it is given implies esteem, respect and distinction. Honor is what we at Cornerstone University see in and hope to bestow upon each one of our students and alumni. During the recent Homecoming celebration at CU, we were able to publicly honor a few alumni who have shown excellence of character and special dedication to God’s calling on their lives. What a wonderful opportunity to give back to these inspiring men and women who represent Christ so well in their daily lives! The entire Homecoming weekend was a beautiful celebration of all that the Lord has done and is doing in the lives of our students and alumni. We have been richly blessed by the Cornerstone family and continue to be amazed by the work that God is doing through all of you to further his kingdom, even long after you have left this campus. Your influence and commitment to the Father’s narrative as alumni of this university are, in large part, what spurs us on as we continue to build into the lives of current students. We have high hopes for the next generation — especially if our alumni are any indication of where these young people are headed! We appreciate your continued prayers and support as we pursue God’s calling to equip students to have an impact on the world for Christ. Blessings,

Joe Stowell President

young alumna of the year: aubree cantrall (B.A. '10) aubree cantrall, an elementary education graduate, received the Young Alumna of the Year Award during the Homecoming Gala in February.

As a senior, Cantrall won the Student Teacher of the Year Award. Cantrall currently teaches second and third grades at Potter’s House Christian School, a Christcentered school that equips students of all income levels and ethnic heritages. After college she started a prayer house with some friends, called the Engedi Prayer House. Their mission is to intentionally live out their love for Jesus in community by being rooted in prayer and reaching out to their West Side neighbors. They have a rhythm of prayer throughout the week, as well as times of intentional ministry, which includes Kid’s Bible Study for neighborhood kids, community worship and prayer with neighbors. “God has brought his light to our street and answered our prayers!,” says Cantrall. “We’ve seen neighbors who have been hardened by the world become soft to Jesus and accept his salvation. We’ve seen neighbors who are in deeply broken situations come to us for prayer and receive healing.”
