Bush to speak at University of Mobile


MOBILE, Ala. (BP) — Former President George W. Bush will be the keynote speaker at the sixth annual University of Mobile Leadership Banquet Oct. 7.

“We build leaders at UMobile, and we are honored that President Bush has chosen to share his insights and experiences as an international leader at an event which raises scholarship funds to prepare those leaders,” Mark Foley, the school’s president, said.

More than 1,500 students are enrolled at the University of Mobile, which is affiliated with the Alabama Baptist State Convention.

Since leaving office, Bush has focused on launching his presidential center at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, which will house his library as well as the George W. Bush Institute.
