Austin Peay State University to show exhibit on American women’s fashion “What Women Wore”

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Fashion has always been one of the ways a society leaves its mark on history. From fabric and colors emphasizing social standing to design that highlighted society’s ideals of sexuality, a great deal of knowledge can be gained by studying the fashion of the time.

“Our goal (at Austin Peay State University) is to inspire our incoming freshman students and show them that history can be interesting and relevant,” APSU adjunct professor Deanna Carter said. “And after discovering a collection of period women’s clothing, we all decided that the pieces were a fantastic way to teach students about the social status and experiences of American women.”

Austin Peay State University names new student health building named after Wayne and Marianne Ard

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Earlier this year, Wayne Ard, president of Ard Construction, met Austin Peay State University President Alisa White for breakfast at a local restaurant. The conversation that morning quickly turned to Ard’s wife, Marianne, who passed away a few months earlier in December 2014.

“My wife was an education freak,” Ard told President White. “She felt that every high school student should have a college education. She said that education was something you can’t get too much of. So today, in Marianne’s honor, I’ll make a pledge to you.”
