Former President George W. Bush will deliver the keynote address at this year’s Academic Signing Day for the El Dorado Promise scholarship program.
Bush is scheduled to speak on April 22nd at El Dorado High School, where more than 250 graduating seniors will receive scholarships as part of the $50 million program funded by Murphy Oil Corp.
“President Bush wanted to recognize the El Dorado Promise and to congratulate these students,” said Madison Murphy, president of the Murphy Foundation. “We are honored and privileged to have him for a return trip to El Dorado.”
The El Dorado Promise was launched in 2007 to cover college tuition and expenses for graduates of the El Dorado Public Schools.
