Another Successful Ring Ceremony at SHSU
On November 8th, hundreds of SHSU students gathered at the Bernard G. Johnson Coliseum to experience one of the most rewarding moments of their adulthood. The Ring Ceremony is a powerful event where students receive their class ring that resembles a milestone from one of the most memorable chapters in their lives. Only students who complete 75 credit hours at SHSU are eligible to order a ring since it is earned rather than gifted. The night before the ceremony, each ring spent the night at the Sam Houston Memorial Museum. President Alisa White initiated the ceremony with a small speech followed by the Bearkat Battalion Color Guard posting of colors. Students were asked not to put on their ring till everyone received theirs. Each student was called to walk across the stage, receive their ring from President Alisa White followed by a photo taken of the hand-off. Lots of family and friends cheered for the students receiving their rings and each student walked across the stage with an ecstatic smile on their face. Once everybody was sat the students were given the green light to place their rings on their fingers. SHSU student representative, Megan Herzog, gave a wonderful speech on the importance of receiving her ring and the pride she carries as a Bearkat. All the students gathered for a group photo afterwards before exiting the building with their new prized possession.
