As a former teacher, librarian and leader of Helping America's Youth initiative, Mrs. Bush has listened closely to the concerns of young people, parents and community leaders throughout the country. She draws attention to proven programs that help children avoid such risky behaviors as drug and alcohol use, early sexual activity and violence, and the need for a caring adult role model in every child's life.

The 17th annual Spirit of CONTACT Luncheon, From Breaking Point to Turning Point: Listening from the Heart, will be held on Thursday, March 21th at the Hyatt-Regency Dallas, Landmark Ballroom. SMU President and Mrs. Gerald Turner are Honorary Chairs of the luncheon.
