Former first lady Laura Bush recently visited Walter L. Wilkinson Middle School, sitting in and leading a class discussion at the Mesquite, Texas, school.
Wilkinson is one of three “Tier III” schools that receive on-site support from the Middle School Matters Institute. The Middle School Matters program is an initiative of the George W. Bush Institute in partnership with The Meadows Center for Preventing Educational Risk. Also, Wilkinson recently received a $7,000 library grant from the Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries, which awards grants to school libraries nationwide.
