Barbara Bush Skypes with Briarwood Elementary students

(Continued)

OKLAHOMA CITY —

In addition to the elementary students, local teens were on hand to tell Mrs. Bush about a new Barbara Bush Foundation Teen Trendsetters program being established at Southmoore High School. This fall, approximately 20 teens will begin weekly, one-on-one mentoring sessions with a secnd or thirrd-grader at Briarwood to help boost their reading skills.

The teens also showed Mrs. Bush children’s books being donated to Briarwood. The books were collected through a partnership between Phillips 66 and the Barbara Bush Foundation at last weekend’s AdvoCare Texas Kickoff game between Oklahoma State and Mississippi State. Fans were urged to bring books restock library shelves.
