Rebekah Chenelle, a 2014 graduate of CCS, has signed with Texas A&M as one of several individuals accepted onto their equestrian team this year. Rebekah spent the last semester considering the various offers made to her by other pursuing colleges that were hoping to gain her as a student. She chose this school not only for the full scholarship she was offered, but also for the spirit of her future teammates. Rebekah's sister, Leah, who also attended Cornerstone, is finishing her senior year on the team and will return as a student coach for the team. Rebekah will be riding hunt seat at A&M.
Rebekah will be majoring in Communications and Journalism in preparation to one day work in the area of public relations or marketing for a company that she hopes will bring her to either New York City or Chicago.
Rebekah tells us (when we probed her to boast a little), "My last year of competition was my best one! At my last competition I ended up 7th in the country. I'm excited to finally be on a team since riding is [usually] more of an individual sport..."
Rebekah reflects on her time at CCS as one that helped her learn how to juggle her schooling alongside her equestrian pursuits. Cornerstone worked closely with her family to enable her to achieve her equestrian dreams while also earning her high school diploma. CCS is proud of Rebekah!
