Spring 2019 Graduating students receive ring as symbol of university years

Posted on

KINGSVILLE (May 21, 2019) — Graduating students from Texas A&M University-Kingsville who purchased an official school ring received them during one of two special ceremonies during the spring semester.  


            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.


            Students receiving their official school ring are listed, along with their hometown and major. All are from Texas except where otherwise noted.
