While the graduates, friends and families sa in chairs, listening to the several speeches, many others sat on the nearby hillside, or strolled along the manicured green lawns. Retiring UTC President Sorensen presided over this, his last graduating class. He paid special tribute to Dr. and Mrs. 0. C. Tanner, for their gift of a fountain, which was given to the Orem campus. Kem C. Gardner, chairman of the Utah State Board of Regents spoke to the graduates, saying that UTC will assume the role of a general or liberal education junior college, but added that this would not be at the expense of the school's vocational training programs. Dr. Marvin Higbee, the incoming president, spoke of education as unlocking creative powers of each individual. He added that we must "hold high the lamp of freedom, hold high the lamp of truth." Phyllis Pierce, valedictorian of the graduating class said she was honored to be chosen and would treasure the honor for the rest of her life. The pretty HotelRestaurant Major told the gathering that education was for living and education was for making a living." c.
