Bush in LR

Posted By on Fri, May 27, 2011 at 4:04 PM

Former President George W. Bush was in Little Rock today for the dedication of a garden honoring Warren and Harriet Stephens at First Tee of Central Arkansas, a public golf course established with a gift by the late Jackson T. Stephens.

The event also marked the 10th anniversary of First Tee, a not-for-profit organization supported by gifts and the city of Little Rock. Its Jackson T. Stephens Youth Golf Academy aims to introduce to the game to children who might otherwise not be able to play. The child in the photograph is Rebekah Walker, 11, who participated in the ceremony.
