Work Study Heroes Luncheon 2019
Google Hosts Inaugural Work Study Heroes Luncheon
for Cristo Rey San José
On February 6, 2019, more than 150 corporate work study partners, supervisors and supporters of Cristo Rey San José gathered for the inaugural Work Study Heroes Luncheon. Generously hosted by Google at its Sunnyvale campus, the luncheon was a celebration and recognition of the amazing, transformative work that is occuring with Cristo Rey students in the workplace.
The program featured students sharing their experiences, relationships and best practices in the work study program. Leading off was Kevin Ruby, Senior One Team Lead Ambassador at Deloitte, along with his student, Bryceida V., sharing their experiences working together for the past two years. Next, a panel consisting of a current student, Verenice V.; an alumnus, Jackie T. (enrolled at Notre Dame de Namur); a supervisor, Maggie Ruiz Lum (Google); and an executive, Ryan Kottenstette (CEO at Cape Analytics), shared their reflections on the program.
