In 1989 Michael’s name was carved in stone above the auditorium of Gardner Street Elementary School in Hollywood. Michael donated money to the school and attended the naming ceremony.
In 2003, after parental requests, the school had Michael’s name covered.
Michael’s fans and supporters have begun a campaign to have his name restored to its rightful prominence over the auditorium. The campaign is in the form of a Facebook petition, where fans can download and sign a letter to the school district superintendent.
