Texas A&M-Kingsville seniors get class rings
William Holz of Hobson and Johnny De La Zerda of Poth are among Texas A&M-Kingsville students sporting official school rings.
Graduating students from Texas A&M University-Kingsville who purchased an official school ring received them during a special ceremony held May 1.
Graduates and alumni are able to purchase an official Texas A&M-Kingsville ring. Students have made the ring purchase and ceremony an annual tradition of the university. A committee of students, staff, alumni, and faculty selected a company to design the ring. Its symbols reflect the university’s history and traditions.
The symbols include the school’s mascot, the javelina, because of its tenacity; mesquite and cactus, because they personify the students’ ability to survive and prosper; palm trees, because they are found all over campus; the Lone Star, because it symbolizes the state of Texas; and the College Hall clock tower, because it is the most recognized landmark on campus.
William will graduate with a degree in chemical engineering and Johnny, with a degree in political science.
