Since it's founding in 1899, Joliet Township High School District has seen thousands of students walk through its halls. The district's existing process for engaging its alumni was cumbersome and ineffective, depending largely on Excel spreadsheets. As a result, JTHS struggled to maintain updated databases and could not effectively communicate with its former students. Through JTHS Nation, the district can now maintain accurate records and cultivate meaningful connections with its former students. This makes it easier for the district to facilitate and spread the word about alumni events, while enhancing its alumni engagement overall. District staff have since experienced a streamlined process for gathering and updating information, as well as for fundraising. The district has also been able to centralize information and communicate with its alumni from one central hub.
