" THE MICHAEL JACKSON AUDITORIUM "
GARDNER STREET ELEMENTARY, HOLLYWOOD , CA
Once upon a time, late pop icon Michael Jackson was
a student at Gardner Street Elementary in Hollywood
whose after-schoolactivities included being in a singing
group with his brothers.
In 1989, the star attended a ceremony during which
the school's auditorium was named in his honor. But in
2003, the name was covered up with boards.
Following Jackson's death in 2009,
a group of fans campaigned the have the name restored
to the campus facility, and this week, their wish was granted.
Yesterday , Oct. 15th the boards were removed from
the auditorium and the silver letters re-revealed.
“It’s important for the District to value the artistic impact
and humanitarian contribution that will be the lasting legacy
of Michael Jackson,” said Los Angeles School Board member
Steven Zimmer via a press release.
"I’m happy that we will be recognizing and appreciating
Michael’s LAUSD moment.”
Gleaming silver letters across the front of the
building now read:
"The Michael Jackson Auditorium"
Sunday Oct. 17th MJHOAXLIVE will be going
