Fort Campbell, KY – The Army has many aspiring leaders within its ranks; however each soldier, like 26-year-old Staff Sgt. Scott D. Mark, a native of Orlando, FL, and a platoon sergeant with Company D, 2nd Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, has their own story on how they got there.

“I joined the military on September 2003, two years after September 11th because I was still in high school, so I wasn’t allowed to join right after 9/11,” he said. “The other half of it is, I just needed a break from school, and I saw the military as an opportunity to get my feet wet in the real world. That’s pretty much why I joined.”

The military was not always easy for the fresh high school graduate, but as time changed, so did he.

Cattle donation allows APSU Agriculture Department to expand offerings

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – In August of 2010, the Austin Peay State University Department of Agriculture had the unfortunate designation as being both a small and growing program within the University. Its student population had increased by about 20 percent in two years, but the department only had three full-time faculty members.

“We needed an additional faculty member to help us teach the increase in students, but late that summer, I was getting word we might not get a new position,” Dr. Donald Sudbrink, chair of the APSU Department of Agriculture, said. “Then we received this wonderful donation, and so many positive things happened in rapid succession. It was a game changer for us.”
