The schools we attended are the reflections of our social, political and academic aspirations. One of the greatest symbols of our academic pride and achievements are our class rings. These rings have changed over time from golden circles engraved with the mascots and academic symbols to golden arches topped with stones encrusted with the dominant letter representing our schools, mascots and academic symbols on the sides. When we look at these rings, we reflect upon the time period , the people who were our peers, the people who molded us and the the school community of our youth. These rings represent our big bang.
