JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WHAS11) – On Wednesday officials from Greater Clark County Schools took a trip back in time.

They opened a time capsule from 1979.

The capsule was buried on Franklin Square in Jeffersonville-- when it was part of the old Jeffersonville High School.

Students contributed items like a vinyl Fleetwood Mac album, Daisy Dukes, newspapers, a giant Kiss poster, Doobie Brothers tickets, and space dust candy.

The district's transportation's director, who was the principal of the school at the time, says he was caught off guard by a few of the items.

 “I was surprised at the Kiss and the blue jeans... but that's what the kids were wearing back then,” Milt Clayton, transportation director, said.

Those Daisy Dukes belonged to a student-- who now works for Greater Clark County Schools. Clayton wanted to dig up the capsule before he retires in December.
