Rebecca,we unfortunately do not have any contact info for Mr. Willis' family. That's why I suggested our archives to you. I probably didn't make it clear that Atlantic Christian was the name of Barton College prior to it being changed in 1991. We hold all the records from the AC days, and are very proud of our heritage. So sorry to hear of your Dad's passing.

    Summer,       Thank you so very much for your efforts to help me in search-ing for the owner of this ring. I'm sad to hear of the passing of Mr. Willis. (I just recently lost my Daddy, as well.) I know you cannot give out any information on him or his family, but is there anyway that you could contact his family and tell them about his ring? Then, if they're interested, they could get in touch with me. My email is Thank you for your kindness in assisting me.  I deeply appreciate it!                     Still Searching,                     Rebecca M. Smith

Rebecca,I do have the records, and the name I think you're trying to read is Michael M. Willis. He graduated from Atlantic Christian in 1973. Unfortunately, Mr. Willis is deceased. If your father is willing, we would love to have the ring for our archives.

My father found a class ring, several years ago. I believe he found it on the beach in Panama City, Florida. I have tried to locate the owner, but have just recently been able to figure out the name, or most of it, that's engraved on the inside of the ring. I really would like to find the owner, as my Father is elderly and nearing the end of his life. He's always longed to locate the owner, as he is a retired Baptist minister. The ring is from the Class of 1973, and the name appears to be that of Michael M. Williams. The end of the name Williams isn't real clear. Please contact me and help me locate this individual. Thank you for any assistance! I will be awaiting your answer concerning this ring from Atlantic Christian College. Rebecca M. Smith
