Title of article[edit]

I am not experienced enough in editing the article title in trying to move/redirect this back to "Kevin J Worthen" - he does not use any punctuation with the middle initial. I did change the opening line of the article, but it is now not consistent with the article title. ChristensenMJ (talk) 11:59, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

He was born in 1956, not 1957 fyi. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.2.77.246 (talk) 06:03, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Great! My guess is what when Johnpacklambert did the edit last year that reflected 1957 [[1]], he was just using the age given by the Church News when Worthen became an area seventy in April 2010 and the age was shown as 53 at the time. If the different year is valid, it would be far better to update it than simply to through an "fyi" on the talk page, so move ahead!! Thanks! ChristensenMJ (talk) 07:33, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

 Done — Looks good to me. Thanks, Charles Edwin Shipp (talk) 20:38, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Kevin J. WorthenKevin J Worthen – This page needs to be moved/redirected to the existing article entitled "Kevin J Worthen". As noted in previous talk section, he does not use a period in connection with the intial "J" - confirmation of this can be found from source 5 of the article. The BYU press release regarding appointment to his current assignment includes a specific notation that this is the case. Thank you! ChristensenMJ (talk) 04:45, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

From head of BYU law department to BYU president[edit]

Headine-1: New BYU president: Kevin Worthen to replace Cecil Samuelson

QUOTE: “Kevin J Worthen, 57, BYU's advancement vice president and former dean of the BYU law school, will become BYU's 13th president on May 1, replacing Cecil O. Samuelson, whose tenure included a new school basketball tradition in which students point to him every time a BYU player made a free throw and said, "Whoosh, Cecil." The announcement came at the end of Tuesday's regularly scheduled campus devotional and was made by President Henry B. Eyring, first counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and first vice chairman of the BYU Board of Trustees. "Truly his leadership and influence for good cannot be measured," President Eyring said of President Samuelson. A large crowd in the Marriott Center gave President Samuelson a standing ovation after the devotional ended.” [Salt Lake Tribune, and the student newspaper (noted in the article here), are among sources.]] — Charles Edwin Shipp (talk) 20:42, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
