For me, the week between Christmas and the New Year always serves as a time of reflection, an opportunity to look back at the year past and celebrate its most important milestones. So, just as we did in 2011, today we take a few minutes to reflect on 2012 and commemorate a few of our favorite accomplishments. Here they are, in no particular order. Enjoy! In 2012, the Bush Center and the Bush Institute:
- Held schools accountable for the education of ALL students.
- Empowered women in the Middle East to contribute to their societies and shape their country’s future.
- Advocated for free markets and open trade, with a goal of a U.S. economy that grows at 4%.
- Honored the service and sacrifice of our military servicemen and women, who risk their lives to extend freedom to others.
- Extended lifesaving cervical and breast cancer services to women in Africa through the Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon initiative.
- Released The 4% Solution, our first book addressing our nation’s most critical issue: the economy.
- Launched The Freedom Collection, a groundbreaking effort to document and give voice to the struggle for human freedom and democracy around the world.
- Hosted a conference discussing the legacy and role of America’s First Ladies, featuring a lively and entertaining chat with Mrs. Barbara Bush and Mrs. Laura Bush.
- Expanded our Alliance to Reform Education Leadership (AREL) network to include nine more innovative principal preparation programs.
