A post card was received recently by the BHS Alumni Association, simply
reading, "class of 1980 ring found, please call."
The BHS Alumni Association contacted a South Jersey resident who stated a
1980 class ring was found. "Rosemary" saw an article in the Asbury Park
Press about a Bergenfield High School ring found in the sand. A call was
made to her son in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to provide us with the name and

Mrs. Smith confirmed that she indeed had lost her ring the summer of
graduation. She remembered the exact moment the ring slipped off her finger

A call was made to the New Jersey beachcomber who found the ring, and we are
happy to announce the return of her ring, just in time for her 20th High
School Reunion this November.
