The program was created through the generous support
of Hood alumni to assist qualifying Hood juniors with a Hood ring. Every
year, junior students may apply for a legacy ring and/or ring scholarship. Students are awarded a legacy ring or scholarship based on
exceptional essays on what the significance of the Hood ring and the importance
of the ring tradition means to each of them, and other criteria submitted in
the ring applications. The Hood College ring committee is honored to award
deserving students with legacy rings and scholarships each year.
Legacy rings are made possible through donations
from our compassionate Hood alumni. Every year, students who are awarded a
legacy are matched with a ring donated by alumni. Our students are honored to
wear these special rings with various class year engravings. This program is a special way the Office of Alumni Relations and Special Events carries on the heritage of Hood College and the
In addition, ring scholarships are awarded to Hood students
every year. Students are awarded a full scholarship to purchase a Hood ring. The
scholarships would not be possible without contributions to the ring
scholarship fund from generous Hood alumni and friends.
Students who were awarded a scholarship or legacy
ring received their rings at the annual ring ceremony in March 2015.
If you have questions or would like to donate a
legacy ring or contribute to the scholarship fund, please contact the Office of
Alumni Relations and Special Events at 301-696-3900 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
