Michael Jordan returned to his alma mater on Tuesday.
His Airness, Mr. “Ceiling is the Roof” himself was back at Laney High School in Wilmington to film a Gatorade commercial, according to the school system on Twitter.
Both Laney High and the New Hanover County School System shared a photo of Jordan with Laney assistant principal Aaron Livengood, principal Sharon Dousharm and athletic director Fred Lynch.
Never miss a local story.
Jordan graduated from Laney High in 1981 before going on to play for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he won a national championship his freshman year and then six NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls, 1984-03.
The gym at Laney is named after Jordan and features his famous “Jumpman” logo at center court.
