Throughout the interview process, he was able to convey a vision for our athletic program that is consistent with what I envision for ULM. His enthusiasm and personality are contagious, which will allow him to connect with all of our constituents.”

Wickstrom explained his values to the packed room.

He said, “My four core values are relationships, integrity, service and excellence. I want to build relationships with everyone I can … I want to do everything with integrity. I want to provide great service to our student-athletes, to our fans, to our donors, to the people of this community. I want to do great in the classroom, and I want to do great in the athletic competition. If we follow those four core values, we’re going to be a department that’s proud, were going to be a community that’s proud, were going to be an institution that’s proud, and were going to win championships.”

Also during the press conference, Wickstrom spoke about how athletic success can increase community involvement. “Athletics is going to be something that can trigger growth and positive perception. Athletics can do remarkable things for everybody in this community. For that, athletics will get some good support. We’re going to sell season tickets; we’re going to grow crowds.”

"They continue to achieve success on the national level bringing recognition to the team, our university, city, and region."

In the 2011-2012 season, the team finished in second place in the yearly standings, making the current finish the pinnacle of the team's growing success.

Recent ULM graduate and outgoing team president Paul Clark (B.S. '13) said, "After finishing second last year, we came out at the beginning of this season with our hearts set on nothing short of winning."

According to the ACA, the team will be featured in Cabela’s Collegiate Bass Fishing television series, as well as an episode of Americana Outdoors.  The team will also receive Cabela’s gift cards and prizes.

Photo of Jaden Leach

Jaden Leach, a junior political science major at ULM, is Miss Louisiana 2013.

In three of the last four years, a University of Louisiana at Monroe student or alumna has won the Miss Louisiana crown. 

Continuing that tradition, Jaden Leach, a junior political science major at ULM, captured the 2013 Miss Louisiana title at the Monroe Civic Center's Jack Howard Theater on June 29.

Leach, of Monroe, said it was a “truly a treat” to be named the fourth ULM student in the past five years to win the crown.

“ULM got that crown back this year,” she said.

“I will take a year off now that I’m Miss Louisiana, and then I will have one year left of political science at ULM. After that, I plan to attend law school.”] Her platform is "Children at Risk," and her talent is vocal performance. She sang “Can’t Let Go.” Leach, who competed as Miss Spirit of the Ouachita, is the daughter of Martha and Don Leach.

With Miss America now in September, Leach will spend the bulk of the next few months preparing for the national stage.

The University of Louisiana at Monroe Honors Program — under the direction of professor Joshua Stockley — has flourished.

The University of Louisiana at Monroe Honors Program—under the direction of professor Joshua Stockley—has flourished.

Enrollment has increased, and all of last semester’s graduating students have been accepted into prestigious graduate programs, such as ULM’s College of Pharmacy, Columbia University, Southern Methodist University, and School of Medicine at LSU Health-New Orleans.

Stockley, associate professor of political science, became the director of the ULM Honors Program in May 2011.

Since his appointment, he has helped to recruit over 100 students to the Honors Program.

When Stockley first became director, there were 23 students in the program, with five to seven new students being admitted each year. “In my first year, I recruited 22 new members to the program, and I recruited 36 freshmen the following fall,” he said.

For the upcoming fall semester, Stockley accepted 50 applicants to the Honors Program. These students averaged a 29 on the ACT, and 15 are valedictorians or co-valedictorians of their classes. They include students from such distant locations as Nepal, India, Malaysia, and Russia, as well as students from Texas and Louisiana.

Students in the ULM Honors Program have a 98 percent retention rate and an 88.9 percent graduation rate.

Stockley is enthusiastic about the program’s future. “The future of this program and its students are all very bright.”

Lauren "Gracie" (Clobridge) Updyke (BS '00, MS, '01) has invented a new kind of running tank top.

Gracie’s Gear produces sports bras and tank tops that include Updyke’s patented PowerPouch on the front, providing women with space to store items like cell-phones, keys, and MP3 players while they run or work out.

“Over the next five to 10 years, I would like to see Gracie’s Gear in over a million women’s closets,” said Updyke.

“Gracie’s Gear eliminates so many barriers and provides so much to so many women.”

Updyke has run since she was 11-years-old. Several years ago, as she trained for her first marathon, she found she had nowhere comfortable to store her belongings while she ran.

“I had to carry my keys and phone to stay safe,” she said. “I literally called my mom and had her sew a pocket on all of my bras and tanks. The rest is history!”

KEDM Public Radio 90.3FM, housed at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, earned eight awards for their 2012 news coverage.

The awards were presented during the annual Louisiana Associated Press Broadcasters Association (LAPBA) banquet in Baton Rouge.

KEDM Interim General Manager Jay Curtis explained KEDM's significance and the awards.

“KEDM has always worked to serve our community with high quality local news coverage,” he said. “We’re proud of the depth and breadth of the work done over the past year, examining issues that are important to everyone who lives in our area. I'm so pleased to see that work recognized by the AP.”

KEDM’s News and Public Affairs Director Bob Lenox took home awards across six categories, including top honors in Breaking Weather and Public Affairs for coverage during Hurricane Isaac. Lenox also won a Best Feature award for highlighting a local veteran, and Best Sound for his profile of local musician Rod Allen Payne.

Lenox won two more first-place awards in General News and Spot News for his stories on a business accelerator project and the proposed Neville High School charter transition.

Lenox expressed his appreciation, stating, “It’s a special honor to be recognized by the association with these awards. We look forward in continuing to cover issues and events that shape our community.” 

John Hughes, a former KEDM education reporter, received the prestigious Story of the Year award for his report on public funds going toward promotional materials for the state’s voucher program. Hughes also received a first place award in the In-Depth Series category for his piece regarding the actions school districts are taking on the issue of bullying.

KEDM is a nonprofit public radio station licensed to ULM—a part of the University of Louisiana System—broadcasting a line-up of in-depth news, classical music, and jazz along with special entertainment programs from studios located on ULM’s campus.

ULM’s Museum of Natural History settles into new home

The Museum of Natural History at the University of Louisiana at Monroe has a new home on the first floor of Hanna Hall.

ULM President Dr. Nick J. Bruno said, “I think this new space signifies ULM’s commitment to promote the museum’s contributions to this university, the community, and the region.”

ULM Museum Director and Associate Professor of Biology Dr. Thomas Sasek appreciates the central location of the museum. He said, “The location of the museum is one of the highlights for us…The space has been renovated beautifully. The architects really thought out how the space could function for public displays, including a large window to see into the museum from the hallway.”

There are plans to expand the museum to include the museum’s research collections, laboratory classrooms, offices, and new educational exhibits.

The museum aims to promote and advance an understanding and appreciation of all aspects of history through its collections, exhibits, education, and research. The museum was established in 1962 with the development of the research collections by Dr. Neil Douglas and Dr. R. Dale Thomas. The museum opened its doors to the public in 1999.

In 2011, Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler inducted the museum into the Heroes and Heritage Trail, which highlights 17 Louisiana museums, including the Chennault Aviation and Military Museum in Monroe and the Eddie G. Robinson Museum in Grambling.

The museum will be open during the summer from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday-Thursday, and 10 a.m. – noon on Friday. Summer tours of the museum are available by appointment.

ULM’s Soil Lab Serves the area and Beyond

Throughout the history of ULM’s Soil-Plant Analysis Laboratory, the goal of the lab has been to promote the mission of the university through its commitment to scientific integrity and premier customer service.

Established in 1979, the lab is housed in the Chemistry and Natural Science Building at the corner of Northeast Drive and University Avenue.

The lab was granted accreditation for the analysis of non potable water through the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality in 1998.  This accreditation uniquely qualifies the lab as the only LELAP accredited lab in northeast Louisiana.

The Soil-Plant Lab has built its reputation on providing quality service at a fair price, while paying close attention to the client’s needs.  Laboratory clientele include a diversified range of individuals, municipalities, and local industries, as well as, state and federal agencies.

The lab provides a full range of services including the following:

Soil Testing:  for garden, flower beds, lawn, wildlife food plots, etc. Samples are routinely analyzed for existing nutrient levels. These levels are used to make recommendations for the addition of fertilizer and lime, which ultimately results in achieving conditions for optimum plant growth. 

Water & Wastewater Analyses:  metals, minerals, nutrients and additional standard water tests

Microbiological Services:  Total coliform and fecal coliform analysis is completed on many types of water samples. Methods used in the lab include both membrane filter and presence/absence techniques.

Oil & Gas Field Testing: Drilling mud samples are analyzed by methodology outlined in Statewide Order 29-B, which requires samples to be tested during pit closures in Louisiana and must meet the SW29-B criteria.

Metals & Minerals Analyses:  Elements in both dissolved and total forms are analyzed on numerous sample types, which range from drinking water to fish tissue.

Even when ULM is closed for holiday, the lab is open to accommodate client’s sampling requirements. We welcome you to stop by, whether to tour our facilities or to allow us to put our decades of experience to work in your analytical and research projects.

Browning Named to Maxwell Award Watch List

Photo of Kolton Browning

Kolton Browning in action against Auburn in 2012.

The Maxwell Football Club announced its watch list for the 77th-annual Maxwell Award and ULM’s Kolton Browning earned a spot on the preseason list.

The Maxwell Award, named in honor of Robert W. "Tiny" Maxwell, has been given to America's College Player of the Year since 1937.

Maxwell’s contributions to the game of football were extensive, including as a player, a sportswriter and an official.

Browning enters his final season at the top of the charts with 60 career touchdown passes. In the home finale against North Texas, the Mabank, Texas, native connected with Je’Ron Hamm for his school record 56th career touchdown pass. Browning added four more before the season came to close as he distanced himself from Steven Jyles, who tallied 55 career touchdown passes from 2002-05.

Browning is also on the cusp of breaking three other career records. He will look to chase down Steven Jyles as Browning trails only Jyles in career passing yards (904 yards needed for record), career passing attempts (249 needed for record) and career pass completions (45 completions needed for record).

Semifinalists for the Maxwell Award will be announced Oct. 29, while the three finalists for the award will be unveiled Nov. 25th. The winners of the 2013 Maxwell Award will be announced as part of the Home Depot College Football Awards Show held on Dec. 12.

The formal presentations of these awards will be made at the Maxwell Football Club Awards Gala hosted by Harrah's Entertainment Atlantic City on March 7, 2014.

The Maxwell Award is a member of the National College Football Awards Association (NCFAA) which encompasses the most prestigious awards in college football.

The 21 awards boast 678 years of tradition-selection excellence. Visit www.NCFAA.org to learn more.

Six Warhawks Named All-Louisiana Track and Field

A total of six Warhawks earned All-Louisiana honors following a strong track and field season. Those honored by the Louisiana Sports Writer’s Association were: Clint Broussard, Isaac Grieder, Jonathon Mack, Daniel Mutai, Jamel Sams and Martin Soloman.

Broussard earned All-Louisiana honors as he recorded the best mark in the state as he cleared 6-11.75 in the high jump at the Texas Relays during the final weekend of March.  He edged out LSU’s Fitzroy Dunkley and New Orleans’ Brandon Knight for the top spot.

Grieder claimed Louisiana’s top spot in the decathlon as the sophomore earned All-Louisiana honors with a point total of 6,713 at the Sun Belt Championships.  Mack, meanwhile, posted the third highest mark in the state of Louisiana with 5,196 points.

Daniel Mutai, the Sun Belt’s Most Outanding Track Performer, earned All-Louisiana honors as his time of 9:04.79 in the 3,000-meter steeplechase placed him second in the state.

The Warhawks again had two athletes earn All-Louisiana honors in one category as Sams and Soloman recorded the second- and third-fastest times in the state in the 400-meter hur

Nine Warhawks tabbed preseason All-Sun Belt by Athlon Sports

Athlon Sports recently released its annual preseason All-Sun Belt team and a total of nine ULM players were honored by the publication.  Five of the nine Warhawks earned first team honors from Athlon Sports.

Preseason first-team selections included: Kolton Browning, Kentarius Caldwell, Je’Ron Hamm, Isaiah Newsome and Joseph Treadwell.

Browning, the reigning SBC Offensive Player of the Year, threw for 3,049 yards and 29 touchdown passes in 2012 as he helped lead the Warhawks to an 8-5 record and their first-ever bowl appearance.

Caldwell started the first five games of 2012 before suffering a season-ending injury at Middle Tennessee.  Against BCS competition last year, Caldwell accounted for eight tackles and one pass breakup.

Hamm set new personal bests in catches (62), yards (615) and touchdowns (six) in 2012.  He recorded his first 100-yard receving game with 102 yards at Arkansas State and then set a new mark a week later with 119 yards against North Texas.

Last season, Newsome was selected as a second team member by the Sun Belt Conference as well as the Louisiana Sports Writer’s Association. Newsome led the Warhawks with four interceptions while amassing 57 total tackles (36 solo) and five pass breakups.

Treadwell was one of five players to start all 13 games on the ULM offensive line and he helped the Warhawks total 500 or more yards of total offense in six games.

Meanwhile, second team honorees were: Cameron Blakes, Jyruss Edwards, Vincent Eddie and Jon Fisher.

Blakes started just three games last season as he went down with a season-ending injury in the home opener against Baylor.

Edwards had 438 rushing yards on 99 attempts with six touchdowns before his junior season was cut short due to an injury against South Alabama.

Eddie started 12 games for the Warhawks and appeared in all 13 as he totaled 68 tackles (52 solo) and three pass breakups.  His lone interception of the season came on the third play from scrimmage against No. 8 Arkansas and it set up a Warhawk touchdown drive.

Fisher, like Treadwell, started all 13 games for the Warhawks along the offensive line.  He helped create holes that paved the way for 500 or more yards of offense six times.

Manton named to CFPA Specialist Trophy watch list

Junior Justin Manton has been selected as one of 34 players to earn a spot on the College Football Performance Awards’ Specialist Trophy watch list.

"Congratulations to Justin Manton on earning a spot on the 2013 CFPA Watch List," said CFPA Executive Director Brad Smith. "Manton will be one of the nation's top specialists to watch in 2013."

Last season, Manton hit 57-of-58 PATs and connected on five field goals, including a career-long of 47 yards. His success rate of 98.2% on PATs ranked second in the Sun Belt Conference. Manton hit the first 47 PATs of the season as he broke his on school-record for most consecutive PATs in a single season. 

All CFPA recipients are selected exclusively based upon objective scientific rankings of the extent to which individual players increase the overall effectiveness of their teams. All players are eligible for awards at their respective positions; players are not preemptively eliminated from consideration. More than 130 CFPA recipients have signed professional contracts, and twenty-one have been first-round NFL Draft selections.

Newsome earns spot on Jim Thorpe Award watch list

The Jim Thorpe Award announced its preseason watch list and ULM’s Isaiah Newsome was one of 48 players to be selected to the list.

The Jim Thorpe Award is one of the most coveted awards in college football. The award was established in 1986 and is named after history’s greatest all-around athlete, Jim Thorpe. Thorpe excelled as a running back, passer and kicker on the offensive side of the ball, but also stood out as a defensive back. In addition to his legendary performance on the football field, Thorpe played professional baseball and won Olympic gold medals in the decathlon and pentathlon.

Last season, Newsome was selected as a second team member by the Sun Belt Conference as well as the Louisiana Sports Writer’s Association. Newsome led the Warhawks with four interceptions while amassing 57 total tackles (36 solo) and five pass breakups.

Newsome’s biggest play of the year came in the conference opener at Middle Tennessee.  The Petal, Miss., native intercepted Logan Kilgore in the endzone to end a Blue Raider drive with over eight minutes to play with ULM in front 31-17. Newsome’s interception set up a clock bleeding drive as the Warhawks ran out the clock to preserve the 14-point victory in Murfreesboro, Tenn.

The Jim Thorpe Award Banquet will be held on Tuesday, February 4, 2014 in Oklahoma City.

The Jim Thorpe Award is a member of the National College Football Awards Association (NCFAA) which encompasses the most prestigious awards in college football. The 21 awards boast 678 years of tradition-selection excellence.
