JACKSON, Tenn. (BP)--Former President George H.W. Bush helped Union University stage the most successful scholarship banquet in the event’s eight-year history Sept. 22.
    Donors gave $500,000 to Union’s scholarship fund, and 2,200 people packed the Carl Perkins Civic Center to hear the nation’s 41st President speak of his faith and his experiences in office. Last year’s event with former New York mayor Rudolph Guiliani raised just more than $400,000.
