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

New, 6 comments

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.

The seal on the ring is the original seal of Georgia Tech from back then, The Georgia School of Technology. The ring will be housed in the Alumni Associaton's mezzanine area for viewing.

Holmes was also a member of Georgia Tech's football team in 1893 where they first beat georgie.
