A new tradition has begun at Waxahachie High School – a ring ceremony. The first one was held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 7, in the Fine Arts Center.

The event was conducted by Jostens, provider of high school yearbooks and class rings. Members of the WHS class of 2013 were on hand to walk across the stage and receive their class rings, many of which were presented to students by a parent, grandparent or teacher – while many others were presented by WHS assistant principal, Amy Blanton.

“The purpose today is to create a formal presentation of class rings,” Blanton said. “Your high school ring is a keepsake of your high school years and we hope we can continue this tradition here at Waxahachie High School.”

Jostens representative Mike Humphreys told the students to wait until the final presentation had been presented before opening the box containing their rings.
