Poverty Point World Heritage Site in West Carroll Parish is Northeast Louisiana’s global treasure. One of only 24 sites in the United States and 1,121 worldwide, it was approved by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization in 2014.      

Much of the research, documentation and preservation of the site is a result of the work of station archeologist Diana Greenlee, Ph.D., an adjunct professor at the University of Louisiana Monroe. Greenlee led the process to nominate and secure the UNESCO designation.

Feral hogs cause $1.5 billion of damage each year in the United States. The wild hogs are running rampant throughout the country, but the biggest areas of concern are in the South. Early European explorers broght the hogs to the new world. Some were released to have a food supply along lines of retreat along Desoto's exploration route in North America.

The University of Louisiana Monroe has lost a beloved President Emeritus and Northeast Louisiana has lost one of its most ardent supporters with the death of Dwight D. Vines, Ph.D.

Vines served as president from 1976-1991. He joined the university, then Northeast Louisiana State University, in 1958 as an instructor of management and became a full professor. Vines served as dean of the College of Business from 1964 until he was named president.
