Dear Mr. Kelsey

I have collected autographs for over 20 years. When I was in college I started writing to celebrities and asking them what they would tell a class of elementary school students. Over the years I have gotten over 200 letter and signed pictures to my students. I think that by these very busy people taking the time to share their thoughts with students, it shows the power of education. I hope you enjoy my collection

Ben Jones - AKA: Cooter from the Dukes of Hazzard

I got the opportunity to meet Ben Jones at a car show a couple of years ago. Not only did he play Cooter on the TV show Dukes of Hazzard but he also spent time in the United States House of Representatives. When I met him he signed several things for me including this picture I took of the United States Capital. As he signed it he told me about getting to go up into the rotunda where most people don’t get to go and look out over Washington DC. He said the view was amazing. He signed the picture, “To Mr. Kelsey’s Class God Bless America! from ‘Cooter’ Ben Jones”
