Cornerstone University, with the help of Visbeen Associates, C2AE and dedicated donors, recently completed the renovation of their dining commons. On Monday, August 29, staff, faculty and students were a part of a ribbon cutting ceremony where the space was dedicated. After a few words from the university's President, Joe Stowell, Wayne Visbeen, a Cornerstone Board of Trustees member, and food services director, Cindy Wiltheiss, a round of singing "Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow" concluded the ceremony and welcomed everyone into the new dining experience at Cornerstone. Check out photos of this great new space and the ribbon cutting ceremony below.
