Barbara Bush, Wife of 41st President and Mother of 43rd, Dies at 92
Mrs. Bush died in the evening of Tuesday, April 17th at her home in Houston at the age of 92. The ASH Community is deeply saddened about her death, as many of our alumni students, faculty and even current staff members remember her visits to the ‘new’ American School of The Hague (ASH) campus in 1989 and 1991. In 1989, Former First Lady Bush set the first cornerstone of the building in a special ground breaking ceremony. Some of us still remember her warm and admiral presence, and to honor her contributions to the campus, we put up a plaque in our entrance in commemoration of the event. Former First Lady Bush returned to ASH in the fall of 1991 with Former President Bush Sr. for the official campus opening. These moments will be forever remembered by the community at ASH.
