Show and Tell Friday is here again. If you'd like to be a part of it, go to Kelli's blog!
Today I want to show you some of my old treasures from my jewelry box. In high school I belonged to the Future Teachers of America, and I believe that is where I got the small gavel pin, (bottom piece) when I was the President of FTA (I know, you are soo impressed!).
The Bulova watch was a special graduation present from my Dad. It doesn't work anymore and isn't worth fixing, but I love it so much that I can't get rid of it.
The last piece is my 'senior key' - I am guessing that the significance of this item was explained at one point or another, but I don't remember what it was. My initials are on the back JRR, and the manufacturer's name - Jostens. The front shows our school colors, orange and black (not my fave!) I hated wearing orange on color days, I think I decided it looked bad with my 'dishwater blond' hair (really light brunette). I loved the school, my sisters, my brother, mycousins, my parents and many aunts and uncles graduated from good old Arcanum High. Now I hear they are tearing down the old building and putting up a new building. Probably a good thing, but it does make me sad.
What school memories do you have?
