In celebration of our 100th year anniversary, Union Public Schools is working on an updated alumni directory. Union has partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce the new alumni directory.
In the coming days and weeks, PCI will being contacting alumni via phone, email and postcards about information they may want to include in the directory. Alumni may the information they wish to include in the directory. Alumni are not obligated to purchase the directory but we have received many requests for a directory through the years.
Union hopes the final book, which will be available to alumni only, will be distributed in June 2020. It is hoped the new directory will strengthen connections for reunions, events and updates about the alma mater.
Alumni Directory – Frequently Asked Questions
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 Union High School. Is this a legitimate project, or is it a scam?
