When the seniors graduated they turned their rings so that the writing faced out toward other people and was upside down to the person wearing it.
This was a common custom at Our Lady of Mercy High School in Farmington, MI. The informant performed this ceremony in 1968 when she graduated. I also did this when I graduated in 1968.
