President George W. Bush and President Bill Clinton to Speak at Graduation of Inaugural Class of Presidential Leadership Scholars Program

July 2, 2015



On July 9, 2015, President George W. Bush and President Bill Clinton will speak at the graduation of the inaugural class of the Presidential Leadership Scholars program, a partnership between the presidential centers of George W. Bush, William J. Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Lyndon B. Johnson. The 60 scholars include individuals from diverse backgrounds and geographies from a variety of sectors, including private, public, non-profit, military, and academia, who were selected because of their desire and capacity to strengthen their leadership skills.

Since February 2015, the scholars have traveled once a month to a participating presidential center to learn from former presidents, key administration officials, and leading academics. They studied and put into practice varying approaches to leadership, developed a network of peers, and exchanged ideas with mentors and others. They also developed a personal leadership project, intended to make a significant difference in their communities, across the country, or around the globe.

Presidents Bush and Clinton will participate in a moderated conversation at the graduation ceremony. The event will also include a conversation with entrepreneur Mark Cuban.  Applications for the second class of Presidential Leadership Scholars will also open on July 9, 2015 at www.presidentialleadershipscholars.org
