JTHS Foundation to honor board member

The JTHS Foundation invites all JTHS stakeholders to a reception honoring Board of Education member Arlene Albert on September 20, 2018 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Joliet Central High School Student Center. After devoting 37 years to the Joliet Township High School Board of Education, Mrs. Albert will be stepping down from her position this year to be near family in Washington.

Arlene Albert joined the Board of Education in 1981 as a write-in candidate. She was elected with the highest number of write-in votes of any candidate in the State of Illinois, with the exception of Chicago. Arlene has resided in Joliet since 1969 when her late husband was recruited to serve as Joliet’s first community development director.
