Brigham Young University announced this morning that it has picked a man with Carbon County roots to be its new president.

Kevin J. Worthen, a former dean of BYU's law school, was introduced to students at Tuesday's weekly devotional by Pres. Henry B. Eyring of the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Worthen replaces Cecil O. Samuelson, who has been president since 2003.

Worthen was born in Dragerton and spent his school years in the county. He attended the College of Eastern Utah and went on to BYU where he eventually got a law degree. Later he ended up back at BYU and then became Dean of the law school.

His father, Frank Worthen, was the superintendent of Carbon Schools for a number of years.
