Providence Cristo Rey Packs the House at Draft Day 2016

For the first time in Providence Cristo Rey's school history, the students, faculty and staff staged "Draft Day" at an off-site location in order to accommodate the growing numbers of Corporate Sponsors and incoming students. In a true draft day tradition, the University of Indianapolis Athletic Recreation Center (which was like an indoor football practice field) set the stage for this year's event. David Wantz, Executive Vice President and Provost of the University of Indianapolis offered a welcome, Joseph P. Heidt, our president also offered a welcome, PCRHS 2016 graduate Kaylyn Hicks who is also a member of the University of Indianapolis class of 2020, offered reflections about her work-study experience and Jon Loftin, President and COO of one of our valuable partner companies MJ Insurance offered a keynote address. Former television anchor Eric Halvorson who now works for the Kroger Company served as our emcee. We had approximately 100 representatives from our partner companies. As each company was announced, a representative approached the podium and called the students down and they were then escorted off stage to a step-and-repeat backdrop for photos. See additional links of media coverage, videos and photos below.
