This Mercer Island High School 1982 class ring was mailed to Mercer Island High School sometime in 2012. Associate Principal Craig Olson gave it to the Reporter as he was preparing to leave his post at Mercer Island High School for a new job in Florida.

The large-size men’s ring came wrapped in a single sheet of paper with the letterhead of River Valley High School, “The Home of the Blackhawks,” in Spring Green, Wis.

The note inside simply said, “Good luck finding the owner,” and was signed by Luanne Radel, Principal’s secretary.

Spring Green is some 50 miles west of Madison, Wis., the home of University of Wisconsin – Madison (a.k.a. UW–Madison) or  about 120 miles west of the city of Milwaukee on Lake Michigan.

Inside the Josten's brand silver ring, there is an inscription, "Faith Hope Love."

In order to claim the ring, those who inquire must answer a question or two to establish ownership. For more information or to claim this ring, email editor@mi-reporter.com.
