On September 14, the 2011 annual Grand Rapids Athena Awards were held at the Amway Grand Plaza, with three PGS students receiving scholarships.
The Athena award is held every year and promotes women's leadership by honoring outstanding women and men in the Grand Rapids area. This organization also gives scholarships to a select few non-traditional students that are in the process of continuing their education. This year, there were seven individuals that received a scholarship from Athena Organization.
No other school was mentioned more than Cornerstone during the Scholarship award ceremony. The recipients of the scholarship award were Deborah Benson, Michelle Boone, and Kishen Newton.
