A graduate of Heald Business College, I earned my degree in Business and Computer Science in 1982. I worked in the technological world of Silicon Valley for many years following my graduation before moving to Sacramento. Upon my arrival in Sacramento, I began my nonprofit career work at Jesuit High School and from there moved to Christian Brothers High School until I finally found my way to Cristo Rey High School. When I originally joined Cristo Rey in 2010, I served as the Executive Assistant to the President and Development Coordinator. After taking a 2 year hiatus from the school in 2015, I am back and looking forward to my new position as the Work-Study Program Director. I am extremely excited to have this opportunity to work more closely with our Work-Study partners and most especially with the students. I am committed to strengthening the Work-Study department and look forward to learning how to better serve our sponsors, our community and most importantly, our students.  I am absolutely thrilled to once again be a part of the CRHSS team!

My name is Gustavo Moran Padilla and I joined the Work-Study program in March of 2017 as the Work-Study Transportation Program Coordinator. I previously worked in the Enrollment Department at Cristo Rey assisting with recruitment of students. I attend Sacramento City Community College and I will be transferring to CSUS to complete my education and receive my degree in Sociology. I am an alumni of Cristo Rey High School and graduated in the year 2011. In the future I will obtain my teaching credential and help students be proficient in their student development. I am very grateful for the opportunity to be part of the Cristo Rey community and I hope than I am able to inspire students to be successful by showing them that with the right work ethic and education, they can also achieve their goals.
