President Cofer thanks ULM family for volunteer efforts

ULM President James Cofer expressed his appreciation Thursday during a special reception for the more than 200 faculty, staff and students who volunteered during Hurricane Gustav and Hurricane Ike.

Approximately 150 of the volunteers attended the reception, which was held in the Student Union Building Ballroom.

Of ULM’s extraordinary volunteer efforts, Cofer said: “I realize that many of the activities that you participated in August and September may have been dangerous, may have been hazardous, and most times really uncomfortable. I think that says a lot about the kind of students and faculty and staff that we have on this campus—that they are willing to volunteer in the worst of circumstances to help those who are most in need.

“Once again, thank you so much for everything you do with this campus. As I’ve said many times before, these kinds of efforts make all of us at ULM proud to be here, and we really, really appreciate it. Thank you.”
