Ridgeland High School art teacher wins ring, plans to sell it to buy classroom kiln

-----------------

"I don't have any need of a diamond ring, but I really desperately need a kiln for my classroom," said Couey, the school's visual arts instructor. "If the school had the money, they would pay for this. But they don't have the money.

The band raffled the engagement ring, which was donated by a widowed "band mom" who wishes to remain anonymous, to help raise the roughly $25,000 needed to buy new band uniforms.

The month-long raffle, timed so the ring could be sized for Valentine's Day, raised $9,160, Band Director Rick Chambers said.

my comment: National interest? I don't know. But of all the news I've read in a while this was the awesomest story.

NEED A RING?
Couey's ring has three solitaire diamonds and six accent diamonds set in 14-karat white gold. It's about a size 9. To make an offer, email her at erikacouey@walkerschools.org.
