Former first lady Laura Bush will be the featured speaker at the Western Association of Food Chains convention next year.
She will be the opening speaker at the Tuesday morning general session at the 94th Annual WAFC Convention, scheduled for May 2-6, 2015, at the JW Marriott Desert Springs in Palm Desert, Calif.
Bush, the wife of 43rd U.S. president George W. Bush, served as first lady from 2001 to 2009. Known as “One of the most beloved and admired American First Ladies,” for decades she has championed key issues in the fields of education, health care and human rights.
“Mrs. Bush’s continued involvement in education demonstrates her commitment to positively influence and shape the lives of others which fits perfectly with WAFC’s mission of ‘Advancing the Food Industry Through Education and Leadership,’” stated WAFC president and chairwoman Sue Klug of Unified Grocers.
