Washington, CT - Class rings are a popular tradition for high schools and universities. They are a display of school pride and a visual symbol of the diploma. With a history dating back to 1935, the class ring is entrenched as an important rite of passage for students as the step forward into adulthood. On Wednesday June 9, 2010, the students of the Glenholme School celebrated the donning of their class rings with a special ceremony and luncheon. 

Judy Cooper, the school's executive administrator, spoke in great detail about the history of the class ring and its popularity. While Maryann Campbell, executive director, enlightened the group with the account of the Glenholme class ring and the school crest. The elegant ring was designed by the Class of 2009 with the Glenholme Crest, which is a melding of the Van Sinderen family crest and the crest of Devereux. The side design is the symbol of the school, the Learning Tree.  Learning, much like the ring, is a circle.  The Class of 2010 will soon complete the circle of their high school education to embark on a new circle of learning in colleges, universities, and academies.

Congratulations Glenholme Class of 2010; wear your ring with pride for we wish all of you the brightest of futures.
