George P. Bush spoke about his Hispanic heritage and called for greater political participation by the Latino community.

Bush said his interest in public service comes from his grandmother, Barbara Bush. He quoted her saying, "If we served others before thinking of ourselves, typically things would work out for the best". Bush is a candidate for Commissioner of the Texas General Land Office in 2014.

Tuesday's award ceremony was sponsored by Brookshire's and Super 1 Foods.
