BellSouth Nashville Cover to feature Commodores

Nashville, TN. - The 2004-05 Greater Nashville "The Real Yellow Pages" directory published by BellSouth will feature a cover that depicts the recent success experienced by Vanderbilt athletic teams.

The cover, unveiled Monday afternoon during a press conference on the Vanderbilt campus, features seven SEC and NCAA trophies, Vanderbilt uniforms and equipment, two basketball nets and a national academic award.

Delivery of BellSouth's 2004-05 "The Real Yellow Pages" will begin Tuesday, and is expected to take four to six weeks to complete. More than one million total copies of the popular directory will be delivered to homes and businesses in the Nashville area.

Marty Dickens, president of BellSouth's Tennessee Operations and David Williams II, Vanderbilt Vice Chancellor for Student Life and University Affairs, unveiled the cover Monday. "We are pleased and appreciative of this opportunity afforded to Vanderbilt University by our friends at BellSouth," Williams said. "This publication provides Vanderbilt another opportunity to celebrate one of the most successful years in the history of Vanderbilt athletics."

"Vanderbilt is one of the oldest members of the Nashville community with a proven track record of success and we're very pleased to support and acknowledge their success. It's important to recognize our long-term relationship with Vanderbilt as well as showing our support," Dickens said.

"I'd also like to thank the residents of Nashville who have continued to choose The Real Yellow Pages over other offerings." Michael Schoenfeld, Vice Chancellor for Public Affairs at Vanderbilt, said the cover represents an ideal partnership for the university. "To be in every home and business in this community is a great honor for Vanderbilt University," Schoenfeld said. " Vanderbilt athletics has a proud tradition dating back nearly 125 years.

"The Commodores have been important to many Nashvillians so it is especially gratifying to be able to showcase some of our recent successes through this opportunity with The Real Yellow Pages. We see it as two fine traditions working together." Top Stories
