DDHS Alumni Directory Project starts in Summer 2016

AlumniDirectoryAn effort to connect with Delavan-Darien High School alumni begins in earnest on Monday, Aug. 29.

The Delavan-Darien School District has partnered with Publishing Concepts Incorporated (http://www.publishingconcepts.com/) to create an updated directory of all Delavan-Darien High School and Delavan High School alumni back to as early as 1905.

The last such alumni directory project was completed in 2009.

Paper and electronic copies of the directory will be available for purchase through PCI when the project is completed in mid 2017.

The district and the Delavan-Darien School District Foundation plan to use the completed directory to cultivate better relationships with alumni. Examples include informing alumni about upcoming district or foundation events; inviting alumni back into the classroom as experts in their career field; and informing alumni about alumni reunions, fundraisers and other opportunities to reconnect with Delavan-Darien schools.

Contact from PCI

Representatives from PCI may be calling, sending postcards to and emailing alumni.

Is this legit?

  1. I received an email/postcard/phone call from a company asking for my personal information. They said they were working on a directory for Delavan-Darien High School. Is this a legitimate project, or is it a scam?

We have partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce our new alumni directory. PCI is a company located in Dallas, TX and Chesapeake, VA that publishes directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities and military organizations across the nation. This project allows Delavan-Darien High School to receive important updates to our database so we know more about our alumni and how we can better serve you and future alumni.
