AMU President H. J. Towey Visits with President Bush in Texas
November 18, 2011 – Ave Maria University President H. James Towey poses for a picture with his friend and former employer, United States President George W. Bush, moments before the former President addressed a faith-based gathering in Dallas, Texas. America’s 43rd president and Towey visited at the Bush’s Dallas home and later traveled together to the speech – although, as President Towey observed, “his motorcade is smaller and it stops at red lights.” President Towey was grateful for the opportunity to share with the President all of the good news coming from Ave Maria. “It was great to be with President Bush and it was just like old times, except that now he is a little more laid back and there isn’t the constant pressure. He looked great and was getting ready to go on a family trip to Africa, and his speech to the folks supporting a local pregnancy center that helps moms choose life, was fascinating, and at times, hilarious. He definitely is comfortable in his role away from the spotlight.” At their meeting, President Bush told Towey that he would meet with a group of Ave Maria University supporters when he comes to Naples on February 3, 2012.
