SSF Mobile App

SSF alumnus, Bruce Mills, shared a great story with us of reconnecting with one of his housemates. Bruce said, "I had been looking for Wayne for many years, but he has such a common last name (Smith) that Google searches were fruitless." Bruce downloaded the SSF app, hoping that he would finally find him.

Bruce's mission was a success and after all these years, he was able to locate Wayne and reconnect. "I am extremely pleased that I was able to find him." Click here to download the app, and start your search!
