Juniors receive class rings

It was standing room only in the Lauralton Chapel when the members of the Class of 2017 received their rings.  The annual Junior Ring Ceremony has become one of the most cherished traditions for a Lauralton student. The ring is a symbol of sisterhood for more than 5,000 alumnae throughout the world.  While the bestowing of the Lauralton Hall ring has changed over the generations, the ring has remained the same.

This year’s Junior Ring Ceremony was held on Oct. 7.  Principal Cynthia Gallant provided a warm welcome. Dr. Toni Iadarola described the importance of the Lauralton ring, with allusions to “The Lord of the Rings” and the Papal Ring.  Junior Class President, Katherine Simonetti provided a powerful and poignant message of the value of the shared experience of a Lauralton education.

The rings were presented by Dr. Toni assisted by Senior Class moderator  Marilyn Cummings and Class President Simonetti or a legacy if their mother, grandmother, sister or aunt is a Lauralton alumna. The Ceremony was followed by a reception in Claven Auditorium where everyone was enthusiastically invited to “turn a ring” for good luck.
