Junior (Faces Beam “Look!” Startled se»<yral times by such an outcry last week, I began to get used to being shouted at to please notice the hand before me, heavy with a familiar looking ring, proudly being displayed. As junior after junior came to me or passed nearby, I remem bered last year when I myself poked a proud finger at somebody to show off my new ring! I was really proud of it, too; and of course, just as proud as are all the new owners of NHHS class rings this year! After long and eager waiting for their rings, the juniors’ beaming faces were all smiles throughout the entire day Thursday. Joy and glowing faces even lingered no ticeably for severla following days, which is not surprising, for the acquisition of a class ring is ’the” big event in the life of an NHHS junior!
