WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush and first lady Laura Bush will not attend the graduation ceremonies of their twin daughters later this month in order to avoid disruptions for families of the other graduates, the White House announced Thursday.
Jenna Bush is an English major at the University of Texas at Austin, while Barbara Bush is majoring in humanities at Yale University.
White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe said the president and first lady decided to spare families the rigorous security measures that go along with a presidential visit.
"They want the focus to be on the graduates and their families and not how long they're going to have to wait to go through the metal detectors," he said.
