Longview, TX — A former first daughter told a Longview audience Tuesday she knew education had the power to change lives, but as she’s traveled the globe, she realizes education can literally save lives.
“I believe the more we know about the plight of people all over the world, the more we’re likely to help them,” said Jenna Bush Hager, the daughter of former President George W.

Hager, a contributing correspondent for NBC’s “Today” show who also serves as an editor-at-large for Southern Living magazine, shared her thoughts on balancing work and motherhood, the importance of being involved in the community and a few anecdotes about her famous parents and grandparents as the guest speaker at Tuesday’s Stars Over Longview luncheon.
