I was wondering when this great honor was going to occur!! The City of Gary, Indiana is set to name a school after their hometown musical hero Michael Jackson.
WOW….what a great honor for the undisputed King of Pop!!!

Michael Jackson’s hometown to name school for him
The Gary Community School Board on Tuesday approved a memorandum of understanding with Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson. The agreement that Katherine Jackson signed last month says the district wants to inspire children to excel in the arts and education.
District superintendent Cheryl Pruitt tells the Post-Tribune she’s working with the Jackson family on which school to rename.
Pruitt says the renaming came up in a conversation with Katherine Jackson, who donated $10,000 during the Gary Promise scholarship event hosted by Magic Johnson in April.
