Tennessee State Representative - House District 67Clarksville, TN – The recent news of the departure of Austin Peay State University President Tim Hall to become the next leader at Mercy College in New York is certainly a blow to our community, especially those of us who are Austin Peay alums.

It must be said though that Tim and Lee Hall have infused a new standard of excellence at our alma mater, and they have made an equal, if not greater impact on higher education in our beloved state.
