Article #2: Elder Quentin L. Cook Visits the Center
Submitted by: Alfred Grace, President & CEO
“We were delighted to have Elder Quentin L. Cook and Sister Mary G. Cook along with Elder Clark G. Gilbert and Sister Christine C. Gilbert, join us for dinner and show last Friday. They were here to participate in the BYU–H Commencement today which saw many of our student employees graduate.
They loved their dinner at Pounders and couldn’t stop talking about how good the fish was. Superb job Pounders!
They also loved the sweet spirit at the cast meeting and were beyond pleased with the show. Fantastic work Theater.
As to be expected everything ran very smoothly under the watchful eye of the Guest Services management team.
During the cast meeting, Delsa commented how blessed we have been to have two apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ visit us here at BYU–H and PCC in less than a month. I couldn’t agree with her more.
