Class ring returned to San Antonio woman after being stolen 18 years ago
This year has been an unforgettable Christmas for a local woman who regained her class ring after it was stolen 18 years ago.
Social media aided Norah Constantino’s journey and showed why this ring means so much to her and her family.
“Oh my God, this is so delicate. It is not going good, no ? But it is amazing. My God, ”Constantino said.
The moment was captured just outside Southside High School where Constantino again received his 1989 class ring.
Everyone’s class ring has memories, a sense of accomplishment. But for Norah, her ring means so much more.
“My mother passed away in 2003 from breast cancer, and a few months later my house was broken into and the items that were taken from my house were my jewelry from my jewelry box. And part of that joy was my class ring, ”Constantino said.
This moving reunion was thanks to the kindness of others. The Abilene Teachers Federal Credit Union found the ring, searched for the high school and name on Google, and made the call.
“I got my class ring back after 18 years. It’s finally back, ”said Constantino.
Norah is also working to find the rightful owner of another class ring that her parents found years ago.
“I just want to pay up front and hope it gets to the right owner like mine did to me,” Constantino said.
She understands that a class ring can mean more than just graduation. And, as Constantino works to find the one missing this ring, she wants her story to help others.
“Let people know that there are good people and I hope that will inspire others to do good,” Constantino said.
