The time honored tradition of Ring Ceremony at Alverno High School took place on the terrace of the historic Villa del Sol d’Oro and provides the class with the opportunity to look back at their first two years at Alverno while looking forward to their last two.
After listening to speeches from their classmates who addressed the Alverno community, parents, and the Class of 2017 they were presented with their rings by Julia V. Fanara, Head of School. Each young woman received a ring that she had personally designed herself, which included aspects of her personality as well as her life at Alverno.
“Ring Ceremony is such a wonderful part of the tradition at Alverno High School,” said Julia V. Fanara, Head of School. “In two short years, these young women have grown into exceptional leaders and scholars who have found an empowered voice at Alverno. We congratulate as they transition as to a new part of their student life here. We cannot wait to see what they accomplish over the next two years and the incredible women they become.”
