Dr. Scott W. Cameron, associate dean of the J. Reuben Clark Law School, will speak at the Devotional today in the de Jong Concert Hall.
According to Carri Jenkins of the University Communications Department, all devotionals for Spring Term will be held in the de Jong Concert Hall in the Harris Fine Arts Center.
Brigham Young University’s student body will be reduced to one-third of its normal size during Spring Term. Due to the smaller audience size all devotionals and forums were moved to the new location.
Cameron received his bachelor’s degree in English and a master’s degree in education from Stanford University. After teaching for two years at Ricks College he enrolled in the charter class of BYU’s J. Reuben Clark Law School.
Cameron served as an attorney in Salt Lake City for 11 years and as an assistant superintendent of public instruction for the state of Utah for two years. He became the associate dean of the BYU Law School in 1989.
Cameron teaches public education law and is a member of the Provo City School Board.
He is married to Christine Cannon Cameron, and they are the parents of six children.
Mrs. Cameron said she repeatedly hears students comment on the dean’s willingness to listen and help them. He is very sensitive and understanding of other’s needs, she said.
The title of Cameron’s speech is “The Seasons of His Mercy”. He said he believes that the seasons are important because we can be taught them and because our own lives parallel the seasons of the year.
Cameron will relay the importance of seeing God’s mercies each day, each hour, each breath, a whole life long. If we can learn to see them more clearly, it will surely make Spring Term better, and hopefully, it will affect eternity.
“The Prophet Moroni suggests that a knowledge of God’s merciful dealings with all of his children is a prerequisite to asking for assistance and discovering truth (Moroni 10:3),” Cameron said.
