Mrs. Bush's Remarks at Roger Williams University Commencement Ceremony
Mrs. Laura Bush delivers the commencement speech on Saturday, May 20, 2006, to Roger Williams University's graduating class of 2006, in Bristol, Rhode Island. In her remark, Mrs. Bush recognized Nadima Sahar, Arezo Kohistani and Mahbooba Babrakzai, the first graduates of the Initiative to Educate Afghan Women at Roger Williams University: "American women know that Afghanistan's future success requires widespread education among Afghans. By educating promising young Afghan women in American colleges, the Initiative is making sure Afghanistan’s future leaders will extend the freedom and opportunity of their new democracy to all Afghans – including women and girls," said Mrs. Bush.
