ULM featured at 2010 CenturyLink Accent on Excellence Breakfast Nov. 9
Several prominent University of Louisiana at Monroe programs will be honored at the 2010 CenturyLink Accent on Excellence Breakfast, Nov. 9.
The Monroe Chamber of Commerce hosts the annual breakfast, which will be held at the Monroe Civic Center Conference Hall. Area teachers and schools will also be recognized for their achievements in support of academic excellence.
The Accent on Excellence Breakfast will honor the following ULM programs and directors: Center for Business and Economic Research, directed by Dr. Robert Eisenstadt; Delta Regional Educators Academy, directed by Rhonda Mann; HHMI Pre-College Research Program, directed by Dr. Ann Findley; and University of Louisiana at Monroe Choral Ensembles, directed by Dr. Deborah Chandler.
• The Center for Business and Economic Research (CBER) provides economic data published annually in the Northeast Louisiana Fact Book, a valuable resource for business leaders and economic development professionals. With CBER's vital information, Monroe attracted a large-scale manufacturing company to the area.
These programs and directors help ULM to fulfill its mission of preparing students for meaningful lives and service to humanity through excellent student-centered learning every year.
