As the chief elder gives the elevens their assignments Jonas notices that he has been skipped. This causes him great distress and the chief elder has to apologize to everyone for the inconvenience.
It will be painful...
After the apology the chief elder goes on to say that Jonas has been selected as the next receiver of memory and the entire crowd is shocked. They haven't had a new receiver of memory in ten years.
Chief elder later goes on to explain that the previous receiver of memory, a trainee, was a mistake that caused terrible discomfort to all of the citizens of the community.

In response to Jonas being selected for such an honorable job all of the citizens in the crowd start chanting his name like they did for baby Caleb, soft at first, then louder
