Patricia Peterson Pinegar

Ninth General Primary President: 1994–1999

As the Church continued to grow, the Primary needed to adapt to an ever wider range of circumstances. During her tenure as the ninth General President, Sister Pinegar organized a simply structured curriculum. Now all Primary classes would be taught from only three different manuals a year, depending on the ages of the children. An expanded achievement days program for girls 8 to 11 years old paralleled the Cub Scout program for boys.
