Chalmette High School Celebrates Ring Day for the Class of 2023
Chalmette, LA - In keeping with this year’s theme, Chalmette High School’s Class of 2023 celebrated Ring Day on World Gratitude Day. Over 400 seniors took part in this annual event and time-honored tradition of the district’s high school.
Held on the field of Bobby Nuss Stadium, this major milestone on the path to graduation commemorates the achievements, contributions, and leadership of this year’s senior class.
In her remarks to the graduates, Superintendent Doris Voitier spoke about the growth of the senior class since they enrolled as 9th graders.
“Clearly you’ve grown since then. In stature, confidence, and of course, in knowledge. And, you have also grown socially. Through your friendships and shared experiences, you have shaped each other into something special — the Class of 2023,” Voitier said.
After receiving their class ring, seniors walked through the ceremonial, decorative “C” ring as family members in attendance cheered and took photos.
In closing, Voitier reminded everyone of the importance and the power of gratitude.
“I wish you immense success and happiness in your future. But remember, happiness comes from living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.”
Wayne Warner, principal of CHS, has taken part in 57 ring days and said each one holds a special place for him.
“Every class has its own personality, and that is certainly the class with this year’s seniors. Despite the challenges, these Owls continue to soar. We are very proud of them,” he said.
Warner congratulated the seniors, reminding them of the importance of this celebration.
