My grandson found Miss Sue Sumners ring on the school play ground he attends in Wilmington about 2 weeks ago. I am the one wanting him to return the ring to the rightful owner. He does not want to give his information but I will give my phone number and you can get in touch with me. You will have to give me your name and may have to leave a message and I will have to get back to you.
My name is Debra Padgett and my phone number is 704-278-0038.
Miss Sue Sumner's class was 1969.

Found: New Hanover High School 1963 class ring. Name engraved: Linda Mae Douglas. My husband is in the Navy and when we were first married we lived in Pensacola, Florida. I found the ring at a flea market in Milton, Florida almost 20 years ago. I passed it to my Mom who lives in Maryland and happened to graduate from NHHS in 1961 - that is why the ring caught my eye. She was never able to find the owner. I was visiting my Mom this weekend and she mentioned she still had the ring. I now have it and am hoping to be able to return the ring to it's owner. I would like to know how the ring ended up at a small flea market in Florida. Had it been lost or stolen from the owner? If anyone knows how I can get in touch with Linda Mae Douglas (or a family member), you may contact me at Please put NHHS Class Ring in the subject line so I don't mistakenly delete the e-mail. Thank you. Monica Bichard
