Brigham Young University inaugurates a new president
Yesterday Kevin J. Worthen was inaugurated as the 13th president of Brigham Young University. He was charged by President Henry B. Eyring of the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to remember that the course of this university has been set by the Lord and that “things will work out” if he does so. President Eyring’s remarks emphasized the unique character of Brigham Young University as a place where secular and spiritual learning go hand in hand.
President Worthen’s inaugural address built on the theme laid out by President Eyring and focused on going to the mountains to learn in ways both secular and spiritual so that we can become better men and women. President Worthen has chosen Y Mountain as the symbol on his medallion of office. More information about Y Mountain can be found here. President Worthen has a deep appreciation for the history of Brigham Young University and we are delighted in his selection as 13th president of this wonderful university.
