FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Cristo Rey Jesuit High School Draft Day Pairs 320 Students with 58 Leading Milwaukee Companies
Cristo Rey Jesuit High School held its third annual Draft Day on August 15 from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, hosted by the Milwaukee Bucks. The program featured remarks from Paul Eberle, CEO of Husch Blackwell and Cristo Rey Jesuit Board Chair. The high-energy event, which kicked off the school’s innovate corporate work study program, announced the placement of students with corporate partners from around the greater Milwaukee area for the coming academic year. In the style of a professional sports draft, students entered the arena through the tunnel and then were called on stage, greeted by their new corporate work partners and presented with company “swag.” “We are so grateful to our Corporate Work Study partners for giving Cristo Rey Jesuit students real-world work experience. Their investment in our students, and by extension our community, is what really makes this program work,” said Joe Mazza, Cristo Rey Jesuit Corporate Work Study Program Director.
Since the school’s first Draft Day in 2015, the number of corporate partners involved in the program has grown from 23 to nearly 60. Each company hires a team of students who alternate working 8-hour days to fulfill the responsibilities of one full-time position. The school’s academic schedule is arranged so students are able to balance 5 full work days each month with the demands of a college preparatory curriculum. Over the years, additional companies have joined the program, while others have added more positions to match the growth of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School. A full list of Cristo Rey Jesuit Corporate Work Study Partners is available here.
