George H. W. Bush and Virginia Seminary

Before faculty meeting started today, the dean talked a little about his meeting with former president George H. W. Bush, and showed us the presidential cufflinks that he was given. The visit was also the topic in the dean's blog today. Here are some excerpts:

...I had the opportunity to meet with former President George H. W. Bush and then later in the day with his Secretary of State James Baker. ...As a lifelong Episcopalian, President Bush mused on his many and varied connections with clergy in our church (leaders like M. L. Agnew, Peter Cheney, and Russ Levenson). Virtually every single priest he mentioned was an alum of Virginia Theological Seminary. ...As we listened to the President reflect on his years of service in various administrations and at the highest levels of leadership in this country, we also heard about the service of our alums who provide a careful faithful witness to the Gospel that supports the people of God....
