Staying connected with alumni a top priority at District 88

 

Pictured is District 88 Director of Community Relations Dani Brink.

At District 88, staying in touch with alumni is one of our top priorities. Our alumni truly create the spirit of District 88 and represent the pride, tradition and excellence that define Addison Trail and Willowbrook. Our focus is to keep former students connected and engaged with their alma mater long after high school – once a Blazer or Warrior, always a Blazer or Warrior. Below are a variety of ways to stay involved.

Addison Trail alumni
