The Class Ring Legacy Continues

R-MWC Class Ring and Gift Box

R-MWC Class Ring and Gift Box

Several years ago, a thoughtful alumna, Julia Myers Clay ’47, donated her R-MWC class ring so that a student who could not otherwise afford to purchase her own would have the pride and enjoyment of wearing the ring.

The tradition has continued—and now includes the engraving of the new recipient’s initials in the ring before the surprise presentation during Ring Week. Our honored ring tradition has been embraced by the Randolph College men as well, yet most of the R-MWC rings we have received are too small for our male students. We have started a ring fund to purchase rings for deserving male students who cannot otherwise afford one.

You can help the Office of Alumnae and Alumni by donating your R-MWC ring or by making a contribution to the College ring fund. Class rings or donations by check, marked “ring fund,” should be sent to the Office of Alumnae and Alumni, 2500 Rivermont Avenue, Lynchburg, Virginia 24503- 1526. You may wish to receive gift- in-kind credit to the College for your thoughtful gift.
