ULM Athletes to participate in City Clean-Up efforts

This Saturday, March 9, The University of Louisiana at Monroe athletes will participate in Monroe Mayor, Jamie Mayo's, "Operation Clean Sweep" Neighborhood Blitz. The student-athletes, who will include team members from a variety of ULM sports, will meet in front of Malone Stadium at 7:15 a.m. ULM coaches will also be on hand. They will be working at the Powell Community Center, and in the Booker T. area.

ULM Senior Woman Administrator, Traci Murphy, is coordinating this event for the ULM volunteers. She says, "The athletes feel like they want to give back to the community. Since Mayor Mayo is a former ULM athlete and has helped with the athletic program, the students felt the event would be a wonderful opportunity for community involvement."
