CALEXICO — Eric Jarero really liked Jay Z’s latest album “4:44,” and, after hearing it last year, made it his goal to showcase his love for it during his time at Calexico High School.

However, instead of blaring the album on a Bluetooth speaker during passing periods, he decided he would buy himself a T-shirt with the album’s title on it — but, not until he earned a GPA of the equivalent number.
