PRESIDENT of the Seventh-day Adventist World Church, Pastor Ted Wilson paid a visit to the new Fulton College site in Sabeto yesterday.

Mr Wilson along with his wife, Nancy and president of the Trans-Pacific Union Mission, Pastor Waisea Vuniwa annointed the ground on which the new college was being built and planted trees to commemorate their visit.

The brand new Fulton College in Sabeto is scheduled to be completed by 2014 at an estimated cost of $80 million.

Also present at the blessing were five delegates from the SDA church in Australia.

Mr Wilson holds a doctorate in religious education from New York University, a Master of divinity degree from Andrews University and a Master of Science degree in public health from Loma Linda University's School of Public Health.

The 60-year-old pastor was elected president of the 16.3 million global protestant denomination in June last year.
