Education can be a bit unnerving

Summarized by Eileen Bell

Education can be a bit unnerving
Provo UT Daily Herald 17Aug99 C4
By Grant Madsen: Special to The Daily Herald

This article set up last week's Education Week classes at BYU. The popular annual event draws members of the Church from throughout North America for a week of special lecture opportunities.

One of the 170 BYU faculty taking part was professor of Church history and doctrine Susan Easton Black. "It's nice when one or two people who are eager to learn show up to hear you speak. But it can be a little scary when there are lots of people there." Sister Black carried out her lectures at the Marriott Center, the same 23 thousand seat area where President Boyd K. Packer spoke on Tuesday morning.

Sister Black is modest about the crowds she draws. Beforehand, she said she felt her topic what attracts the crowds. "I'm going to be talking about the life of the Savior, and I think that people will show up because they're interested in the topic."

This year's theme for Education Week was "The Quest for Light and Truth."
