Texas A&M alumnus reclaims long lost class ring
After losing his beloved class ring in 2006, Texas A&M alumnus Darryl Morris is reunited with his keepsake once more.
Morris, who graduated from Texas A&M in 1993, last saw the ring, a gift from his wife and son, over six years ago. After getting home from a school board meeting, he stashed the ring in his usual hiding place. Following a cable technician visit the next morning, the ring went missing, as did its theft report at the local police department, Morris said.
In early July, a Pasadena ISD employee stumbled upon a gold college ring in a parking lot at The Summit on East Sam Houston Parkway. It was a Texas A&M ring from the Class of 1993. It was engraved with the name of Darryl Lynn Morris.
Following a lengthy process of finding Morris, the ring was finally returned to its rightful owner.
"You can’t really describe what that ring means to someone who doesn’t know," said Morris in a press release. "It's really wonderful. It nearly brought me to tears."
A celebrated tradition at Texas A&M, students can only order a class ring after meeting the university's academic criteria. It is a quick identification tool for Aggies across the globe.
Officer Seth King, a graduate of Texas A&M at Galveston, was happy to get the ring back to a fellow Aggie.
"It was nice to get him his property back," said King in a press release. "We try to do the best we can for everybody."
Morris says it was more than just another piece of retrieved property.
"It’s like a dream," said Morris. "I can’t believe I'm going to get to wear it again."
