President Monson Tells CEU Grads To 'Labor to Learn'
Deseret News 7May00 D2
By Christi C. Babbit: Deseret News staff writer

PRICE, UTAH -- A record number of graduates at the College of Eastern Utah heard President Thomas S. Monson of the LDS Church's First Presidency give the commencement address at the College on Saturday. The class included 400 graduating with associate degrees and 51 with certificates of completion.

President Monson gave a three-part message, urging the class to "Labor to learn, think to thank and strive to serve." He gave examples of several famous historical figures, including Winston Churchill and Albert Einstein who overcame rejection and went on to learn and achieve. "Any of us can say, 'I reject that rejection,' " he said. He said that the three words "think to thank," are a "capsule course in human relations." And President Monson urged the students to "strive to serve," saying work, coupled with vision, will bring true success.
