“When my son was very young, I drove my son to school and went to his classroom. There were 40 kids in there, and I thought, ‘There is no way someone could learn in here, or that a teacher could teach.’ I decided to get involved and asked how I could help.”
For nearly 20 years, Larry has been a volunteer for Lawton Public Schools, reading to students, running the LPS Foundation’s Booster Club, and regularly donating school supplies. Running booster clubs for both Almor West and Woodland Hills elementary schools.
A small businessman, Bush founded the Larry Bush Insurance agency over 20 years ago.
