Dr Gardner took over the baton from Dr Herbert Thompson, who
served as the president of the institution for more than 20 years.
The installation ceremony was a pompous affair. People from
across Jamaica and overseas journeyed to Mandeville, Manchester, to witness
this special event. Politicians, educators, local and overseas members of the
Seventh-day Adventist Church conferences, along with the NCU family, turned out
to support the newly installed president.
