McHenry, IL -- August 11, 2022. Six years after being established, the Premier Partner Program from Follett School Solutions continues to flourish as it gives select publishers a rare opportunity to help build their brand and deliver the best content to schools.
Through this invitation-only program, Follett collaborates with key publisher partners to provide them with benefits they can't secure elsewhere; high-visibility marketing; direct access to Follett's sales team; and fostering of content connections with Follett customers through private events.
