Former President George W. Bush to visit Alabama

FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) - Former President George W. Bush is headed to Alabama in August.

Heritage Christian University has announced that the former president will speak at a fundraising event Aug. 27 at the Marriott Shoals Conference Center in Florence.

Bush's wife, Laura, spoke at the same event last year.

Heritage President Dennis Jones said the university wanted Bush to speak because he was at America's helm during some of the defining moments in history. Jones said it will be the first time a president has visited the Shoals area since 1980, when Jimmy Carter spent a day in the area.
