Dear CRDLS Community,

As you know, we have had an opening for a new Director of Admissions and Community Engagement for about two months. We posted the job on several sites and received a number of resumes. Over the past few weeks, we screened candidates and conducted interviews. I am thrilled to announce the promotion of Annie Nguyen to Director of Admission and Community Engagement, effective August 15, at Cristo Rey De La Salle.

Annie joined Cristo Rey’s Corporate Work Study Program last year and brings a wealth of experience in both community outreach and building internal/external relationships that will benefit our thriving Admissions team. Eduardo, our Enrollment Manager for the Admissions team, is very excited to be a part of this new “Dream Team,” and to help secure our future incoming classes.

The Director of the Corporate Work Study Program, John Coughlan, is sad to lose such an integral member of his department, but is in support of the transition. Under his tutelage, Ms. Nguyen was able to forge many Corporate Partners for our founding class of freshmen Student Associates. Thus, she is profoundly appreciated and respected by many of our community members. She is highly organized and attentive to detail and a master at followthrough. Annie’s former position, as the Associate Director of the Corporate Work Study Program will be posted on August 15, 2019.

Please join me in a warm welcome to Annie.
Matthew D. Powell
Former Interim President & CEO
