GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- Former President George W. Bush helped draw a sold-out crowd of 900 people to the second annual West Michigan Aviation Academy's Leaders of Tomorrow Gala in Grand Rapids.

The former President was the keynote speaker last night at the fundraiser for the charter school founded by Michigan Republican heavyweight and Amway heir Dick DeVos.  The "Grand Rapids Press" reports the event raised 400-thousand dollars for the school.

Bush said the keys to successful education include high standards and "academic rigor in a way that encourages students."
