Recently, the sophomore class at Rangeview High School was visited by
a representative from Herff Jones with information on class rings for
the class of 2018. A class ring is a ring specially designed for a
student’s school. Each student is able to customize a ring to fit them
specifically, and because of this, each class ring is special. Class
rings connect schools and classmates, and symbolize the completion of
one step of your journey, in this case, high school, and the memories
you will keep from that chapter in your life.
Besides the excitement from getting to design my own class ring, the
whole thing really got me thinking. A class ring is a tangible
reminder of our high school experiences, a link between our past and
our future. Even when we leave high school, the memories of our time
in it will remain for years and years to come. For better or worse,
this part of our lives shapes us forever.
Before we know it, high school will be gone forever, seen only in our
class ring and memories. Friends and interests will change, others
will stay exactly the same, and all the while time will continue
passing us by. High school is truly an experience to be treasured and
lived while we still can. Not everything from high school will last,
but it will never completely fade from us, either.
