Dedicated volunteers are preserving the history of the Joliet Township High Schools. Closets located on the third floor of the Central campus house the archives of JTHS, JT Central and JT East. Shelves are filled with piles of photographs (both framed and unframed,) graduation mementos and announcements, school newspapers, spirit items (mugs, pennants, pins, etc.) along with yearbooks, trophies, articles on school events, class rings and original doorknobs, and so much more. JT West memorabilia is housed on the West campus.  

Do you have any JTHS related materials in your attic, basement or garage? You can help preserve the past! Anyone who would like to donate memorabilia to the high schools’ archives may contact either archives committee member, Dick Dobbs at (815) 727-5144, or Lynne Lichtenauer, Alumni Relations Director, at (815) 727-6763. The Archives Committee is very happy to receive yearbooks from all campuses and all years as well as graduation programs, athletic programs, etc.  

Yearbooks for JT Central, JT East and JT West are always in great demand. Extra copies are sold to very appreciative graduates and the funds from the sales are used to support archives committee projects.

The Archives Committee also offers ideal gifts for students, staff and alumni such as a variety of Steelman jewelry to doorknob paperweights and Steelman statuettes. Contact Annette Dobbs (815/ 727-5144) for a price list of merchandise available.  

JTHS history is displayed in the archives section on the third floor of the JT Central campus in front of the auditorium’s balcony doors. You are welcome to come and visit the current display.
