George P. Bush Latino Leadership Award University of Texas

Wins Latino Leadership Award

31 Mar, 2015

The University of Texas awards Bush with the first ever Latino Leadership Award. The chairwoman of the Department of Mexican American and Latina/o Studies:

In our diverse Latino Texas, there are very few individuals who have the résumé and record of excellence as Commissioner Bush. His life-long commitment to service as a teacher, veteran, UT alumnus and land commissioner makes him an exemplar of why transformative leadership is valued and necessary.


I am honored and humbled to be the first recipient of the University of Texas Latino Leadership Award. As Texas Land Commissioner and a graduate of the University of Texas, I am proud CMAS is facilitating historical understanding and creating a legacy of cultural respect that should make all Longhorn students proud.
