The Corporate Work Study Program honored 131 seniors and their supervisors at the CWSP Senior
Luncheon this spring. The luncheon returned in an expanded fashion after the pandemic hiatus, bringing
nearly 250 students, supervisors and mentors together to recognize their contributions to the CWSP.
At the luncheon, president Antonio Ortiz acknowledged the commitment of some special job partners. In
attendance were 44 job partners celebrating 10+ and 20+ years of partnership, 33 partners who
continued working with students remotely throughout the pandemic, seven partners who began partnership
during the pandemic and the dozens partners who have alumni working full time, truly completing the
circle for workforce development.
We are so grateful for the time that supervisors dedicate to mentoring and developing their student
workers, and for the countless lessons, both professional and personal, that they deliver through their
relationships. For some seniors working remotely for their companies in the Purcell Innovation Center, it
was their first time seeing their supervisor in person since the start of the year. In attendance were some
professionals who, because of the pandemic, were unable to continue working with their students, but
wanted to support the students they knew as freshmen and sophomores.
Thank you to our steadfast job partners and the supervisors and advocates who allow students to have
this unique opportunity to develop as professionals and gain valuable work experience and mentorship.
