On Tuesday, June 7th — which would have been Prince's 58th birthday (and was recently declared "Prince Day" by Gov. Dayton) — teacher Rosa Bogar will present a plaque to Green Central Park Elementary, honoring the late music legend.
Prince graduated from Central High School in south Minneapolis in 1976, where the elementary school now stands. Bogar wants him to be remembered as a strong student, as well as a musical icon.
“He touched the world,” Bogar told the Star Tribune. “A lot of young people will be inspired by that.”
The plaque reads "Let us keep the legacy of Prince alive."
“The plaque is magical because it almost looks like a mirror,” Bogar added. “It gives you a sense of connection and reflection of the life of Prince and how he can live through you.”
