Former first lady Laura Bush will speak in Grand Rapids next spring.
Davenport University says Bush will deliver an address during the school's 2013 Excellence in Business Award Gala at DeVos Place on May 3.
Davenport President Richard Pappas says the university is "excited to have Laura Bush join us for this annual celebration," saying she's "respected and admired by so many people for her many contributions."
In addition, Michael Jandernoa will be honored with the 2013 Peter C. Cook Excellence in Business Award at the event, which benefits student scholarships at Davenport.
Jandernoa is the former chairman and CEO of Perrigo Co., a maker of store-brand over-the-counter drugs and infant formulas.
