Alumni from Hyde Bath and Woodstock campuses have another way to connect. The Hyde Schools Alumni office has launched a new mobile application utilizing the program designed by EverTrue, giving Hyde Alumni a way to keep track of, and connect with, their fellow classmates by way of their updates to popular social media networks such as LinkedIn and Facebook. Using LinkedIn as the platform for their original program, EverTrue has now expanded their program to pull in updates from a variety of resources. Other private college preparatory schools currently using EverTrue for their alumni include Berwick Academy, Brewster Academy, Deerfield Academy, Exeter, Kents Hill, and Putney School.
Joy Bengtson, Director of Alumni and Parent Relations for Hyde Schools, has been working diligently to ensure that the launch goes smoothly for Hyde’s diverse alumni group. While the initial rollout will be exclusive to Hyde Alumni, planning is in the works to extend the Hyde EverTrue network to include Hyde’s Alumni Parent Association as well. Hyde’s unique curriculum is noted for its focus on family and as a result, the parents of Hyde Alumni often remain as active in the Hyde community as their children do, providing a wealth of resources and connections.
“I’m excited that Hyde is launching its own EverTrue mobile app, as it creates opportunities for the Hyde alumni to connect in this dynamic and ever evolving social media community. EverTrue brings with it a tried and proven platform, providing alumni the chance to stay connected by way of their mobile device. Via social and professional networks, and Hyde’s Alumni Office, the Hyde EverTrue app will updated continually with current alumni information, making it a fantastic resource for our users. The world of Hyde is literally in their hands.”
Alumni can download the EverTrue app to their iPhones or Androids. Instructions for use can be found on the Hyde Alumni page.
