The George Bush Foundation and Library in College Station at Texas A&M will be hosting a big 25th anniversary celebration of the elder Bush’s term in the White House. The event will include music by Clay Walker and a series of panels, led by former Governor John Sununu, highlighting domestic achievements of former policy makers to discuss the fall of the Soviet Union and the reunification of Germany, Operation Desert Storm and the 1990 budget. The Bush Foundation CEO, Fred McClure says that locating the Library in College Station was a decision that traces its roots all the way back to the Soviet era. ”The President’s Association, frankly, with Texas A&M goes back to when he was running for the Senate and it sort of made sense to put the library here when he made the decision back in 1991.”
Fox News’ Shannon Bream will moderate a discussion with Jon Meacham, Mark Updegrove and Jeff Engel - historians and authors of books focused on President Bush. A current events panels will look forward with Digital Pioneer Joe Trippi moderating discussions on how we govern in the digital age. Topics will include a technology briefing followed by a look at technology and government, then a look at geopolitics, diplomacy and warfare in the digital age. Panelists will include executives from Yahoo and Google as well as experts from the Departments of Defense and State.
The celebration will wrap up with a Town Hall meeting featuring former Governor Jeb Bush in an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Shannon Bream. Shannon’s program, “America’s News Headquarters,” will originate live at noon from the George Bush Presidential Library Center.
