In 1877, a 17-year-old young man by the name of Benjamin Cluff Jr. was working as the city librarian in the small town of Coalville, Utah, located 65 miles west of where we are this morning. Young Benjamin, who had grown up the son of a carpenter and farmer, had felt the pull to do something different than his father. He was excited for the opportunity to become the librarian and delighted at the thought of perusing all the books the library held.
Superintendent Sweat spoke at the April 2017 McKay School convocation. His address highlighted the life of Benjamin Cluff Jr. and also included uplifting messages from Elder Holland. Sweat encouraged the graduates to stay strong and enjoy the work they would soon be doing in K–12 education, reminding them that the Lord would be on their side as they pursued their careers in teaching.
