Brent Scowcroft Makes Donation of Books to Montfort
The Montfort Academy began the school year by accepting a historic gift. Brent Scowcroft, former National Security Advisor to Presidents George H.W. Bush and Gerald Ford, and his colleagues at The Scowcroft Group, donated more than one hundred volumes from his personal library. The collection contains many signed autobiographies and biographies of world leaders, including United States Presidents, Secretaries of State and Defense, Ambassadors, and foreign Prime Ministers, including Presidents Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, and George H.W. Bush, Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir, and Secretary of State Colin Powell. This priceless collection of books is on display at The Montfort Academy to inspire our students with the life of General Scowcroft and his many lessons of leadership, public service, and virtue.
