Mitchell has been a longtime, avid supporter of Cornerstone Schools and serves on both the Board of Directors and its Executive Committee. Mitchell founded the Cornerstone Junior Board over ten years ago, after recognizing that Cornerstone Schools had a need for committed service from Birmingham’s young professionals.
This year marked the 13th Harvest of Hope fundraiser directly benefiting the over 500 students attending Cornerstone Schools. Maynard Shareholder Kirby Sevier served as the Emcee of the night’s festivities, which was well attended by supporters and leaders in the Birmingham community. Following an auction and hour of socializing, guests enjoyed a seated dinner and short presentation to recognize Jay Mitchell and highlight some of Cornerstone Schools’ many success stories during the past year.
As always, 100% of all proceeds will directly benefit the students at Cornerstone Schools, a non-profit, inner city school for students K4-12 grades. Cornerstone provides all student with a rigorous education, while focusing on developing character in each student, in a Christ centered environment.
