12/05/13 On Monday, December 2nd the class of 2016 met before school for Plymouth High School’s first annual “Class Ring Ceremony”. Class President Curtis Smith opened the ceremony explaining the meaning of the class ring and how it bonds a circle of eternal unity, school, a class and friends, and how the ring presents a special remembrance of student’s moments during their high school years.

 

Vice President Ricky Cooper then explained the symbolic meaning of the ring, the stone of varied color, and the uniqueness that will shine through out time.

 

Class Officer Audrey Pratt had the honor of presenting the rings to her classmates and spoke of the importance of the life long memories that will be made in the four short years of high school.

 

Finishing off the ceremony, Class Officer Morgan Oberley spoke of the turning of the ring stating that “The class ring could be viewed in two different ways, either looking at it as the end or the beginning. Oberley said that she doesn’t see it as neither the beginning nor the end, but more of a symbol of a lifelong learning process that starts with birth and will continue throughout life by using her high school experiences and memories as an important building block of her future.

 

Oberley and her parents then guided the students and their families as they turned the ring fifteen times away from the student’s heart then one final turn back locking the ring on the finger bringing the student good luck, the sixteen turns represents each year of the students graduating class year date.

 

The ring turning ceremony is very popular with many schools.   The Jostens representative suggested making the event an annual thing for sophomores at PHS.
