STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- A 1946 class ring has been found in an unlikely place -- in a sewage line.
The Stillwater NewsPress reports (http://bit.ly/17wE2ZF) that water utilities department worker Charlie Yeats found the 10-karat class ring as he was flushing a backed-up sewer line. Spotting something shiny, Yeats discovered the 1946 Chickasaw High School class ring.
Once found, Don Bishop, water utilities wastewater collection supervisor, took over. Bishop snapped photos of the ring, including initials on the ring and the year. With the assistance of the Chickasaw High School librarian, the ring's owner was identified.
Turns out Lodema Noland lost it in a toilet while at college at Oklahoma A&M, which is now Oklahoma State University.
Bishop says he hopes to have a ceremony soon to reunite Noland with her ring.
