[Video] Whoosh Cecil: The Legacy of President Samuelson
April 29, 2014
A tribute to the 12th president of BYU, Cecil O. Samuelson, who ended his 11-year tenure on April 30, 2014. A respected physician and scholar, President Samuelson accepted the call to lead the university on May 1, 2003. With wit, wisdom and faith President Samuelson inspired a generation of students, improved the physical campus and focused the university on educational priorities.
At an excavation site in northern Mexico, BYU archaeology students and professors recently discovered artifacts that have been buried for 1,000 years, including pottery sherds, hammer stones, maize kernels and — intriguing at a location 250 miles inland — a shell bead from the Pacific Ocean.
