I remember Woodrow Jones when he came to Highland HS late in the fall 1964.  I was not friends with Woodrow but later would become friends with his brother Prentiss " Leon " Jones  and learned that he was  a great academic student but an outstanding football player .  He later would go on to U of New Mexico and being an outstanding Football Player and earn a PHD and become Professor at Collegiate level.

Rest in Peace Woodrow !    Lee Hayes

I am quite saddened by this news.  I met Woody in Oliver Neece's physics class in '64-'65.   I think Barbara Levin was also in that same class.  Woody was such a quiet and polite young man.  He was also very smart, as his career achievements attest.  It's odd that I ran across Woody's picture just a couple days ago as I was looking for something in the UNM 1969 yearbook.  Rest in peace, friend.
