Samantha Kendrick found her passion for event planning as a marketing intern at Cornerstone University her freshman year. After transferring to the University of Central Florida, she was able to explore the event industry through many valuable internships that solidified her desire to serve in the hospitality-business sector. After graduation, Samantha moved back to Grand Rapids to pursue a career in the city she loves most.
"There is such a special place in my heart for Cornerstone University, as it opened my eyes spiritually, while simultaneously directing my career path toward what I feel I'm lead to do. I'm thankful to return to Cornerstone to serve in a position that allows me to demonstrate the Christ-like hospitality that was so graciously shown to me as a student."
