Featuring speakers such as Elder RichardG. Scott of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ ofLatter-day Saints, successful businessman Firoz “King” Husein and Elder DanielK. Judd of the General Sunday School Presidency of the Church, the symposiumfocused on the importance of BYU graduates living the highest standards ofmorality and integrity.

An excerpt from the introduction reads, “Integrityis a matter of behavior, sound thinking and an attitude that honesty isessential to good business and engineering practices. Church membership compelsLatter-day Saints to be trustworthy and immune from political, financial, orpersonal corruption in a world where such traits are fast losing ground toeconomic expediency and personal greed.”
