Acting President of the Quorum of the Twelve Boyd K. Packer then spoke to the members about the competence of their newly sustained prophet. "No man comes to be a president of this church unless he's been apprenticed for a lifetime," said Packer. He also explained how the succession of power is transferred to the new presidency, explaining that this process has been a line of unbroken The LDS religion sustained their new authority since the restoration of the gospel. President Hinckley has served for the church for nearly 60 years, dedicating most of his time to former presidents of the Church as their counselor. L.

Senior News Editor Jennifer MlnnlchThe College Times Mike Schlappi is a motivational speaker. The Department of Services for Students with Disabilities provides services to about 950 students per year. The center was established over 12 years and it is there to ensure that no qualified individual with a disability be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of services, programs, or activities of Utah Valley State College, or be subjected to discrimination by the college or by its personnel. The program focuses on the developmental needs of college students with disabilities to maximize the potential of these students to benefit from the academic environment and experiences. There are currently about 45 employees in the center. Most of them are part time and serve in ways such as note takers, interpreters, readers and a variety of other people that assist with accommodative services. "We ha ve a large popula tion of students with disabilities on campus," said Curtis Pendleton, director of Services for Students with Disabilities. 'This center is probably one of the fastest growing departments on campus. We're expanding and continuing to grow." UVSC has the second largest population ofstudentswith disabilities in the state, second only to Salt Lake Community College. "Per capita, we have more students with disabilities than SLCC," said Pendleton. "Close to ten percent of the students with disabilities." The school has such a large population for a variety of reasons. One of the reasons is because of the Learning Enrichment Program that is very strong in aiding students with learning disabilities or who have struggled through school because of barriers that have come up due to those disabilities. "Our campus is probably, in comparison to other campuses in the state, See STUDENTS, Page 7 UVSC programs find a new home next to Provo airport Katie McKim News Editor The state Board of Regents gave Utah Valley State College permission to purchase a building next to the Provo Airport to house three of the school's homeless programs. The school has been searching for a new place to house the Fire Science Academy, the Continuing Education program, the Driver's Education courses and an expanded Aviation Science program. The programs are only four months away form being kicked out of the Provo campus because they sold it to Brigham Young University last summer. UVSC had previously hoped to purchase the Signetics building in Orem to house the programs, however, the option to purchase the Signetics building fell through last month when the Orem City Council rezoned the site to allow a Fred Meyer superstore to move in. The vacant AVTECH building, located at the entrance of the Provo airport, will serve as a "more than adequate" home for the school's programs, according to Dick Chappell, vice president of facilities for UVSC Chappell said that since the aviation program is already partially in residence at the airport, it makes perfect sense to expand the college there. The 40,000 square-foot building is for sale as part of the bankruptcy disbursement of assets owned by the Southern American Insurance Co. The building appraises for $1.3 million, but the school hopes to buy it for $1 million. If the school can buy the building for $1 million they will have enough money left over from the sale of the Provo campus and the legislative appropriation to start designing a new applied technology center that would be built on the land west of the UVSC campus. President Kerry Romesburg said the AVTECH building will ultimately be a better site for the school than the Signetics building would have ever been.
