With friends and family present, East Islip High School’s Class of 2014 revived an old tradition on May 9, holding a class ring ceremony sponsored by Jostens ring company and Keith Murphy.
The event, which took place at the District Office first-floor cafeteria, included a musical ensemble and dessert reception. On hand to present the school rings were Assistant Principal Kevin Brown, class advisors Kate Boucher and Mary Ann Coughlin and Class of 2014 officers Matt Cowdell, Thea Tsolomitis and Rachel Lopiccolo. In addition to receiving their rings, the sophomores also were given hoodies emblazoned with the Class of 2014 logo.
“East Islip High School had not had a ring ceremony in over 15 years and we wanted to help bring this tradition back to EI,” Boucher said.
“Congratulations to all recipients and best of luck on the second half of your journey through East Islip High School,” added Coughlin.
