BIBLE HILL - Graduates from a century-old college in Bible Hill will soon be able to show off a symbol of their pride.
The Nova Scotia Agricultural College will unveil its graduation ring on March 1 during its annual university day activities.
"This new, single ring tradition will provide students and alumni with a true symbol of NSAC," said co-president Bernie MacDonald. "With the purchase of an official ring, graduates will be investing in a lifelong tradition with their classmates as well as those who came before them."
The ring's design features a textured pattern of barley around a simple band.
"The graceful, flowing barley husk pattern reflects the fluid relationship between agriculturalists and the natural environment," explains Donna Hiebert, a Purvell's Cove resident who came up with the design.
"The relief design also subtly references First Nations art, thereby offering tribute to the very first agriculturalists in North
America."
NSAC officials said the response has been very positive to the ring that will be available in white and yellow gold as well as stainless steel.
"The new design is simple, yet unique with its agricultural theme. It will stand out amongst other university grad rings," said current student Nathan Murray.
"The new design is one-of-a-kind, just like NSAC," added NSAC alumnus Jenna Tingley, Class of 2001. "I'm really excited to be able to identify other alumni through the ring,"
