At a young age, Laura was very interested in education and books. She attended Robert E. Lee High School and matriculated in 1964, then attended Southern Methodist University and would graduate four years later with a degree in Education. After her studies, she went on to teach at Longfellow Elementary School, then moving to John F. Kennedy Elementary School where she would teach for three years. She then went to the University of Texas, Austin where she would attain her Library Science master’s degree. She then worked as a librarian at the Houston Public Library before moving to Dawson Elementary. Her net worth was well set.

After her marriage to George W. Bush in 1977, the couple started campaigning for congress in 1978 – he would win the primary but lose in the general election. In 1981, her father-in-law George H. W. Bush was elected as vice president which then led to the couple getting national exposure. They travelled around various countries with the family, but soon Laura’s husband would be elected as Governor of Texas, making her the first lady of that state. She then started to work on various women’s and children’s causes, implementing numerous initiatives. She provided services to abused children and also advocated breast cancer and Alzheimer’s awareness. In 1999, her husband would campaign for presidency and would resign from his post as Governor to be inaugurated as the President in 2001.

She continued to focus on women and children initiatives, but this time tackled them on a more national and international scope. She partnered with the Library of Congress to launch the annual National Book Festival, and also helped in launching the National Anthem Project. She became very active during the recovery period after the September 11 attacks, and would also become an honorary ambassador for the United Nations’ Decade of Literacy. She became an advocate for women’s rights, and partnered with The Heart Truth awareness campaign of 2003. She also became the first person other than a president to deliver the weekly presidential radio address.

Laura’s approval ratings were consistently high throughout President Bush’s first and second terms. During the second term she travelled out of the country more often to become a representative of the United States, visiting a total of 77 countries during the eight years of the Bush presidency. She continued to as a notable political figure even after their service, attending events and even becoming allies with Michelle Obama during the Obama presidency. The two appeared together at numerous events during the next few years.

Aside from her political work, Bush has also written several books, including a memoir entitled “Spoken from the Heart”. She has been rewarded with numerous honors and awards for her work, including the Barbara Walters’ Most Fascinating Person, Order of Gabriela Silang, a 10 for 10 award from the “Women’s Democracy Network”, and many more.

For her personal life, it is known that Laura met George Bush in 1977 and they married a few months later. They have fraternal twin daughters – she is the only First Lady to have given birth to twins.
