The Heritage High School cafeteria was packed full of students and their parents Monday morning as the juniors gathered to receive their class rings. The junior class eagerly awaited their personalized rings in the cafeteria early in the morning. It was a big day for these students because they have been anticipating the arrival of these rings for quite a while.

The General Journal caught up with one of the juniors who were present and asked them how they felt putting their highly anticipated class ring on for the first time. Weston Moore, who is now the proud owner of a HHS silver ring studded with a blue stone, told us, “We went into the cafeteria and then Mr. Bradford told us about how special class rings are. Jostens handed all of us boxes with our rings in them. We all opened them at the same time, and it was awesome. You know in ‘The Lord of the Rings’ when Frodo puts the ring on and he realizes that stuff just got real? It felt like that.”

This tradition is always highly anticipated by the lower classmen at Heritage, so this was an awesome moment for them. This ring will serve as a reminder of their years here at Heritage High School.  Receiving your class ring is a very exciting experience for these students because it officially establishes them as Heritage Generals and will remain a memento and reminder of their time here for the remainder of their lives (or until they lose it).
