Austin Peay State University’s Becky Starnes pens City of Clarksville Book

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – “It’s all about soul,” Dr. Becky Starnes, Austin Peay State University professor of public management, said, referring to her recently published book, “Challenges in City Management: A Case Study Approach.”

“I believe that people often lose touch with their cities,” she said. “We may grow complacent and take the cities we live in for granted. For example, we drive on our city roads almost every day.

When was it built, why was it built, what’s the story behind its name or how does it contribute to the quality of life in our community?”
