ULM featured on cover of AT&T Real Yellow Pages Directory

The University of Louisiana at Monroe, with its majestic bronze Warhawk sculpture in the foreground, is featured on the cover of the new AT&T Real Yellow Pages directory serving the Monroe and West Monroe area.

The 17-foot wingspan sculpture observes and protects the university from its perch near the school’s library. The 2,000-pound Warhawk was created by premier animal sculptor Sandy Scott.

More than 132,000 copies of this AT&T Real Yellow Pages directory have been produced for distribution that begins May 12 and continues through June 8.

“We are proud to feature the University of Louisiana at Monroe on the cover of our new AT&T Real Yellow Pages directories,” said Wynn Lawrence, regional director, AT&T External Affairs. “We continually work to make our directory covers special on the outside, and tailor the community information inside our directories to best meet the needs of local residents and businesses.”

ULM, with an enrollment of more than 9,000 students, offers both traditional and innovative graduate and undergraduate programs in the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Education and Human Development, Health Sciences, and Louisiana's only state-supported College of Pharmacy.

“We are very proud of our university, our students, and our faculty,” said James E. Cofer, university president. "The Warhawk statue embodies the tenacity, integrity, and excellence of our university, and we are pleased to share this important symbol with our community."

As new books are delivered, Monroe and West Monroe-area businesses and residents are encouraged to recycle their outdated directories. AT&T Real Yellow Pages directories are recyclable, and the paper used to print the directories contains recycled materials.

Residents and businesses can call the AT&T Real Yellow Pages Project ReDirectory help line, listed on the directory cover, at 800-953-4400 for directory recycling information in this community.
