Juniors Put on the Hardware
by A.C. Brown '10, Staff Reporter
On Monday, November 24th, the junior class made a giant step in time when they joined many classes in Bishop McNamara's history to receive their rings. Most of the junior class was represented on a cold and rainy night in November, but the weather did not destroy the spirits of the class of 2010.
Nashae Woods '10 said, "I was excited the whole time."
When finally let into the chapel at Mount Calvary, powerful emotions flowed through the junior class.
"I was excited because it felt as if I was growing up," said Chanae Davis '10.
This emotion was echoed by other juniors. Once people received their rings everyone in the building had a common sixth sense that important steps were being taken in the lives of these gifted students.
Alexandra Tucker said, "I felt excited," when asked what she felt after she got her ring.
The night was capped off with a gospel reading of the Prodigal son that produced mixed interpretations.
Aisha Williams '10 said, "It was effective because it dealt with a ring." This effectiveness was lost on Alexandra Tucker '10, who said, "It didn't apply and I didn't see the connection."
This ceremony had some other criticisms. Lester Dela Cruz '10 said, "It was great but it didn't feel like family because everyone wasn't there."
Chanae Davis offered a suggestion to alter future ceremonies saying, "It should be a banquet with food so you can interact with your classmates more."
Overall the thought of officially being a junior was more than enough to overcome these criticisms.
