About General for Cornerstone
Donation in memory of Janet Ross Ebey
Mother of Scott, Ryan, Chad, Shawn, Richard, and Sharon. Lifetime Educator.
Janet spent her entire adult life serving others. She loved children, and from an early age knew she was called to be an educator. Over her 42 years as a schoolteacher, she impacted hundreds, if not thousands of lives. She shared the love of Christ each and every day she showed up in the classroom. After her “retirement” from the classroom, she almost immediately returned to the school to continue helping students achieve their very best. Until the very end of her life, even as she battled leukemia, she found a way to love children. She especially loved caring for students who might have otherwise struggled, and saw them achieve their very best in response to her tender love and care. One of her greatest legacies is the countless adults who now look back and see that the trajectory of their lives changed when they walked into Mrs. Ebey’s classroom.
Janet was never able to physically visit Cornerstone Preparatory Academy, but she loved the work that was being done there. She was so excited to know that children who would otherwise be without an education were able to not only attend school, but were being shown the love of Jesus Christ as they learned. Her family is thankful to know that her legacy will continue on as children are able to go to school because of your generosity in her name.
