Did you have Mrs. McKinney as a student at Jones?

Rodger and Mrs. Mary McKinney.JPG

She is now 84 years old and lives in Athens, Georgia.

Students in her class in 1959/60 were assigned a project to write a letter to themselves, seal it in an envelope and address it to their home address. Mrs. McKinney promised to mail it to her students after 10 years had passed. She was unable to achieve delivery to 21 students. So all these years she has kept the letters.

The Upper Arlington Alumni Association is hoping to help some of Mrs. McKinney's students get the letter they wrote 60 years ago.

Please check the following list.  If you're on it - we have a letter for you (from you)! 


You can email me at or call 614-487-5007 (ext. 1120) to arrange delivery.

Our list of letter recipients still to be found.
