George W. Bush Dedicates Wylie Elementary School Named After Him

WYLIE, TX -- It's not every day the 43rd President of the United States makes a guest appearance at your school's assembly. Well, that's what George W. Bush did as he dedicated the first Texas school named after him. The Wylie ISD elementary first opened its doors last month,  but it was time for the former president to officially christen the quarters!

"I am thrilled and honored to be here," Bush addressed a crowd of Kindergarten through 4th graders.  "I want to thank you all so very much for naming this facility after me."

The special ceremony was streamed live on the district's website for parents to tune in. The school says they're focusing on Bush's legislation "that centered on student success in the classroom."
