Georgia Tech History Update: 1894 Class Ring Comes Home To Tech

The oldest class ring in Georgia Tech history returned to campus this past week from the family of Trezevant Holmes. The individual was a prize winning shop student who crafted the ring himself.

The Holmes family presented the ring to President Bud Peterson at the Alumni House on July 7th.
