Cook Children's Drafts Four Students From Cristo Rey

Last month, Cristo Rey Fort Worth High School kicked off its 2022-23 school year with an NFL-style “Draft Day” matching up students with the businesses they will for as part of the school’s innovative work-study program.

Cook Children's picked up four students in this year's draft, including Alejandra Hiriarte who is returning for her second year. The other students include Mariana Salazar, Valentina Avila and Regina Olmos. As part of the work-study program at Cristo Rey, these outstanding students will work at Cook Children’s one day each week.

“Our group this year have all been super excited and they just jumped in and brought in a whole new energy level to the department,” said Suzanne Seider, director of Talent Acquisition.
