Kelly Rose

Elementary Receptionist

Mrs. Rose has been the welcoming face to the Cornerstone administrative offices for so long, we can’t remember a time without her. Her patience and kindness seem endless as she greets visitors, and students with helpful information and possibly even a band-aid or ice pack when a kid has gotten a scrape on the playground. She is the administrative glue for the Elementary campus.
