The Willows has built a professional network for our alumni—and now’s the time to sign up!
The Network, powered by the Alumni Community app by EverTrue, is designed to be a tool for Willows alumni as they grow their professional careers. With the assistance of the Alumni Community app, an alumnus will now easily be able to access a directory of parents, who have agreed to be resources for our alumni community.
Willows Alumni You can now connect with Willows parents who have signed up to be a professional resource offering advice and insight into your careers. Getting started is easy:
Willows Current & Alumni Parents The Willows wants to help our alumni as they enter the workforce. We have an exceptional community, so what better way to help than by connecting our alumni with it? Whether a current parent, parent of alumni, grandparent or friend, you can help by serving as an informational resource for alumni interested in your field.
The Willows Network is available to all Willows alumni who have submitted a Willows Network Sign Up online. Information is secure and protected, and only members of The Willows community will have access.
