Friday marked the end of a historic and very productive trip to London and Israel for Governor Perry. The trip provided him a chance to talk about Texas’ world class economic climate, start the dialogue with companies who are looking to expand or move overseas, and join with President Peres, Israel's Minister of Education, Shai Piron, and Texas A&M Chancellor John Sharp, to announce the creation of Texas A&M University at Nazareth - Peace Campus. The Nazareth Campus will be the System’s second branch campus in the Middle East – following Texas A&M University at Qatar.

When Gov. Rick Perry visits Israel this week, he will leave a surprising piece of Texas behind: his alma mater, Texas A&M University.
