Spokeo helps a 50-year High School Reunion

Written by Vanessa November 20, 2012

We can’t say enough about how much we love to help connect people. From families, to veterans we love knowing that every day, people are finding their friends and family because they used our search tools.

Back in August, we heard from Ginny who told us she was using our site to connect with former classmates while helping plan her 50-year high school reunion.

Thank you for your services. It was so helpful and fun tracking down classmates from 50 years ago in preparation for our upcoming class reunion.  As we get closer to the date, the number of attendees have grown and I am continuing in the search for more addresses. I’m convinced the event will grow even bigger and you guys ROCK!

What kind words from a Spokeo user with some personality! [See last photo…] We were so happy to be a part of this amazing gathering of people. Fifty years is a major milestone in so many ways. A fifty year wedding anniversary is labeled as “Platinum.” A fifty year employment anniversary usually comes with a swanky gift. Gathering again, fifty years after graduating high school, well that is a quite a feat and we can confirm that the 1962 class of Pontiac Central High School celebrated with style!

 

We were able to reduce our “missing classmate” list from 103 in 2007 to 77 in 2012. Those still missing have common names like John Smith. And our goal  was not only to search for those previously missing, but to confirm addresses of those contacted in previous years.


Spokeo to the rescue? Well we like to think so and we’re so honored to have been a part of such a great milestone for PCHS.

If you’re planning your high school reunion or looking for classmates of any kind, be sure to try the various searches on Spokeo. You can search by name, old phone numbers you may have, or even emails. Don’t ever think for one minute that because you haven’t spoken to someone in years, you shouldn’t soon. Go get searching!
