The George and Barbara Bush Living Legacy
Throughout their full lives of service, which spanned both decades and a variety of noble causes, the one constant in George and Barbara Bush’s lives was helping others. These two remarkable, unforgettable friends were always reaching out to lift those in need, and their selfless leadership proved consequential in helping millions of people across the country and around the world.
Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy
It is difficult for any one of us to imagine not being able to read. And yet, adult literacy is a sweeping, silent crisis in our country. Today, there are tens of millions of American adults who cannot fill out a job application, read to their child, understand simple medication labels, or use a ballot to vote.
Points of Light
President George H.W. Bush led his life according to these principles: he embodied integrity, character, and steadfast strength in the face of adversity. He was a loyal, compassionate friend who cared deeply for others – especially those facing great hardships – and possessed the strength of character that would not allow him to sit idly by while others’ needs were unmet.
The Bush School
The Bush School is focused on preparing every graduate to demonstrate the same principled leadership, professional values, and commitment to serving their fellow citizens as President George H.W. Bush modeled throughout his lifetime of service. The remarkable young leaders and scholars who walk these halls will forever be the living legacy of President George H.W. Bush. He was incredibly proud of them … and they of him. Each of them now carries his memory, and his example, into the remainder of their lives and careers. And they will inspire future generations of Bush School graduates to do the same.
