"I have the highest regard for the many experiences I had during my days at NLU/ULM.  I met my wife Angela there.  I played on the basketball team for four years, winning a conference championship my senior year.  I earned a BBA degree which has benefited me throughout my 20+ year career in business, and my 20+ years in public service as a city councilman and now Mayor of the City of Monroe.  Angela and I have been actively involved as alumni because we
want to help further the strong academic reputation of our school.  We are MONROE PROUD of ULM!" -- Mayor Jamie Mayo, City of Monroe, Class of 1979.
