About this Article

A huge surprise awaited Gary Wade of Herrin on March 5. Chris Homoya presented him with his high school class ring, an item Wade was sure he would never see again. "It's only been about 57 years. This is quite a surprise," Wade said about getting his Herrin High School ring back. He bought in fall 1955, a few months before he graduated in the spring.
