What an awesome place Cornerstone Charter Academy has become. We seem distant from the humble beginnings as the unfamiliar faces we now call friends and support systems thrive year after year. The momentum of Cornerstone is undeniable and proves we as parents would not have settled for anything less as we entrust this "home" to our children's minds on a daily basis. However, we should never get so far accomplished that we lose sight of the foundation that got us there and what will maintain the integrity of the VISION behind why we are all here.

Our School and Board of Directors began with the brain child, founder, Mary Catherine Sauer (Mary C) and we now unbelievably have to turn to our community of parents and extended family supporters to address an inevitable issue: What happens when you no longer want the visionary to be apart of the vision? You might learn from Apple who fired the legendary Steve Jobs and struggled until they brought him back as the CEO and had to learn that a board managing a great idea does not sustain the success of a company. The execution of vision sustains the idea past its inception and duplicates itself time after time. While CCA has an incredible wait list, growing in capacity every year, and a brand new facility, we must make sure that our board is making sound decisions that do not hide behind those benchmarks. For this reason, Mary C needs to be restored to CCA's board to take us into our next decade plus of success.

So we engage you today to join me in signing this petition to RESTORE MARY CATHERINE SAUER BACK TO THE BOARD.


We the undersigned Parents, Students, Staff and Stakeholders of Cornerstone Charter Academy-A Challenge Foundation Academy do hereby respectfully request that the Board of Directors vote to approve and bring back our Founder Mary Catherine Sauer to the board for the following reasons:

Her Accomplishments
* Author of our Charter
* Recruiter of the Founding Board and Staff
* Implemented marketing strategies that genuinely encompassed and recruited the CCA Family we have today
* Developed Cash surplus budgets that enabled the current purchase and finance of our new building
* Advocates for Core Knowledge
* Authored the affiliation with TeamCFA
* Authored Hiring of Acadia Northstar
*Advanced and excels in experience and knowledge of Charter School Law and Governance, operational and technical aspects of a charter school

Her Character
* She is hardworking, principled, strong willed, determined and A SERVANT

Finally, SHE IS THE REASON WHY WE ARE ALL HERE and it is simply time to bring her back to further the success of the school. SIGN AND BRING THE VISION BACK.
