Hixson and DePaul Cristo Rey – A Partnership for the Future

Hixson’s 2017-18 work study student from DePaul Cristo Rey High School

As we approach the close of the 2017-2018 school year, Hixson marks our 5th year serving as a corporate sponsor for DePaul Cristo Rey High School, a co-educational community for students in grades 9-12 of diverse races, religions, and socio-economic levels.  This school, which began in 2011, offers a private, college preparatory education for children who would otherwise be unable to afford it through its unique Corporate Work Study Program.  In the program, students work five days per month in entry-level, professional positions at Hixson, and more than 125 other Corporate Partner employers in Greater Cincinnati.  The work offers real-world job experience while students earn a portion of the cost of their education – all without missing crucial instructional time.

Participating in sponsorships with organizations such as DePaul Cristo Rey are just one way Hixson meets its commitment to give back to the communities in which we live and work. Learn more about Hixson’s community service efforts at https://www.hixson-inc.com/about-us/culture/
