Dear Class of 2009,
As our class has journeyed through both our freshman and sophomore years we have not only challenged our intellect, but we have learned valuable life lessons and created memories that will last us the rest of our lives. In our time here we have formed lasting friendships, gained a sense of community, and learned what it truly is to be a Hokie.
We have shown our Hokie spirit by embracing and pushing all of our athletic teams to the forefront of the ACC. The Hokie spirit we have for our athletics is only surpassed by the spirit that we have for the Virginia Tech community. Through many different outlets we have served our community and learned about ourselves and in what we believe. With our combined efforts, we have grown closer to fellow students, faculty, and Virginia Tech.
In one way or another, by being a part of the Class of 2009, we have all created a legacy and become intertwined with the tradition of Virginia Tech. The longest standing tradition at Virginia Tech, the class ring, is what binds us to our class and
to the more than 200,000 living alumni nationwide. The 2009 class ring is your constant reminder of your accomplishment, memories, and pride for your time at Virginia Tech. I encourage you to embrace this Hokie tradition by receiving your class ring at the Ring Dance this coming March.
Class of 2009 President
