On our recent visit, Cristo Rey Jesuit student Kylie is warmly greeted by every employee including its top leadership.
She knows it’s a blessing to be learning so much at a beautiful office with a stunning view of downtown Houston. “I love working here. I learn something ever day and the people here are amazing, ” she says.
“And we love having her,” added CEO and Managing Partner Wes Colwell. “I would encourage any business to do this. We have never had a problem or a concern with employing a high school student.”
Managing Director Roger Burks is equally passionate. “We are part of the Work-Study program because it is making a difference. It is the right thing to do.”
