BYU President Kevin J Worthen

Kevin J Worthen began serving as the 13th president of Brigham Young University on May 1, 2014. He previously served as BYU’s advancement vice president and as dean of its J. Reuben Clark Law School, where he is the Hugh W. Colton Professor of Law.

President Worthen was born in Dragerton (now East Carbon–Sunnyside), Utah, and grew up in nearby Price. After serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Monterrey, Mexico, he earned an associate degree at the College of Eastern Utah (now USU Eastern). He then received his bachelor of arts in political science and his juris doctorate from BYU.

Following his graduation from the BYU Law School, President Worthen served as a law clerk to Judge Malcolm R. Wilkey of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and Justice Byron R. White of the U.S. Supreme Court. After three years of private practice with the law firm of Jennings, Strouss & Salmon in Phoenix, Arizona, President Worthen joined the BYU Law School faculty in 1987. In 1994, he was a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Chile Law School in Santiago. He has published extensively on a number of legal topics, with particular emphasis on federal Indian law and the rights of indigenous peoples.

President Worthen currently serves as an area seventy in the Church of Jesus Christ. He previously served as a stake president, bishop, high councilor, and early-morning seminary instructor.

Peggy Worthen

Peggy Sealey Worthen, born and raised in Price, Utah, is the second oldest of five children. She is married to Kevin J Worthen, current president of Brigham Young University.

While she was attending the College of Eastern Utah, she met Kevin Worthen at a Church dance and the two soon began dating. Although she grew up three blocks from Kevin and his family, their three-year age difference meant they never went to high school at the same time and didn’t know each other well. In college, she began meeting with the missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and when she decided to be baptized, Kevin was able to baptize her. She and Kevin were married in the Provo Utah LDS Temple.

Early in their marriage, Worthen worked in a number of jobs to support their family as Kevin finished his education and started his career, including as a receptionist for U.S. Senator Jake Garn.

She was able to return to school when Kevin began teaching and graduated with a degree in English from BYU in 2003, the same year their oldest son graduated from high school. She has taken a number of courses since then, including two years of Norwegian.

Jesus the Christ: An Exhibit Commemorating the 100th anniversary

University Events - 9 hours 52 min ago

Sep 4

There is a new exhibit on display in the lobby of the L. Tom Perry Special Collections commemorating the 100th anniversary of the publication of Jesus the Christ. The exhibit is co-curated by Ryan K. Lee, manuscript curator, and Gerrit van Dyk, Mormon Studies librarian.

In September 1915 the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints published Jesus the Christ, a monumental work on the life of Jesus Christ by Elder James E. Talmage of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles that was over a decade in the making. Elder Talmage had already made a name for himself as a brilliant scientist, lecturer, and educator prior to this book. But this work became an instant classic and solidified Talmage’s legendary status among other Church intellectuals and witnesses to the truthfulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Mostly known for being a large book full of an advanced vocabulary, this book has been used for decades as one of the foundational works for Church missionaries and members to study when wanting to know more about the life of Jesus Christ.

This exhibit showcases items from L. Tom Perry Special Collections and the Harold B. Lee Library related to the history and production of this seminal work. Included in the exhibit are entries from Elder Talmage’s personal journals and a video and audio recording of Talmage. Also included are works that influenced Talmage in his writing and research for this book, a first edition copy signed by the First Presidency in 1915, and selected foreign language editions. You are welcome to thumb through a first edition copy from the Lee Library’s open stacks, as well as record any experiences you have had with reading Jesus the Christ. May this exhibit help the visitor better understand the history behind this classic work that influenced so many in their journey to come to know the Savior of Mankind.

This exhibit will be up from August 17 until September 30, 2015. Special Collections is located on the 1st floor of the Harold B. Lee Library.
