A message to ULM faculty and staff from ULM President Nick J. Bruno
I am sure you share the pride held by both our university and our community—pride in ULM's football team and their win Saturday night against the University of Arkansas.
I have received congratulatory notes and calls from all over the state and country regarding this win. Their accomplishment has brought considerable attention to not only the team and players, but to our university.
We could not have afforded to pay for the publicity this one win has brought to our university.
Head Football Coach Todd Berry and his staff have worked very hard to produce a winning team and to ensure the academic success of their players. I also applaud the leadership of Athletic Director Bobby Staub.
Berry's philosophy is shared by all of our coaches. They understand the importance of their students’ academic careers.
On Thursday, there are two events where you can show your support for our student-athletes. At noon at the Garden Inn in West Monroe, the second Quarterback luncheon of the season will be held. The cost is only $10.
The other is a ceremony honoring our Sunbelt Conference baseball team. This will be held at 3 p.m. in the SUB Ballroom.
At that time, the baseball team members will be presented with their conference championship rings. If your schedules permit, please consider attending one or both.
Nick J. Bruno, Ph.D.
