Lost A&M-Galveston Aggie Ring Has Been Found

According to the Texas A&M University-Galveston website, their class ring is an Aggie Ring:

One of the things Sea Aggies are known for—much like their land-locked counterparts in College Station—are their adherence and loyalty to Aggie traditions. Sea Aggies take part in all the time-honored Aggie traditions like Big Event, the Aggie Ring, Elephant Walk, Howdy, Muster and the 12th Man, but they also have their own traditions: Maritime Ball, The Anchor, SALT Camp, Texas Clipper Training vessel.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) _ A Texas A&M-Galveston class ring lost at a snowy park in Wyoming has been returned to the 2012 graduate.

Toni Chandler of Austin was devastated last December when the ring slipped off at Grand Teton National Park.

The marine biology graduate says she made a snow angel, got up, removed her gloves to shake off and the ring flew from her hand.

KXAN-TV reported Sunday that a couple from Cape Cod., Mass., visited the campsite last spring and found the ring.

Barb Walsh spotted something shiny in the gravel. Chandler’s name was engraved inside the ring but Walsh had little luck finding her.

Walsh and her husband had friends over for dinner last week, including a retired law enforcement officer. His knowledge of investigating helped Walsh locate Chandler.
