Looking for a 1985 Olive High School graduate who lost their class ring. It appears to be a ladies ring. The first and last initials engraved on the ring are VC. It does not appear to belong to Vickie Cole, so if there is another 1985 graduate with the first and last initials VC please contact me. There is a middle initial but it will be used to help identify the individual as well as the location where the ring was found. Please contact me at *****
