    Members of the U.S. Military Academy Class of 2022 enthusiastically show off their rings after they received them during the annual Ring Weekend ceremony Friday in front of family and friends (right) at the Trophy Point Amphitheater. The weekend also included a run and banquet to celebrate the milestone event. The tradition of the class ring at USMA first began in 1835. Years later, Ron Turner, USMA Class of 1958, developed the idea of incorporating the gold of alumni rings into the current class╩╝ rings. In November 2000, the Herff Jones Company melted gold of 31 rings with that year's class through the Class Ring Memorial Program. This year, 52 graduates gifted their rings to the program for the Class of 2022.
