Clarksville, TN – The final day of the 2012 Rivers and Spires Festival on Saturday opened with unseasonably cooler weather to the point of being really chilly. Warm coats, hats, and/or gloves were the order of the day. Turnout started out slow, and might have been a little bit depressed over all from previous years as a result, but the people who did come out had a really great time!
Arriving around 11:00am, I found dribs and drabs of people mostly scattered around the various stages. As the morning progressed the numbers steadily increased. I made my way up strawberry alley and watched a vendor playing with one of the many items he had for sale. «Read the rest of this article»

According to Brenda Scarborough, a Career Tech Counselor for the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System; “You hear kids all the time asking why they have to take this class, or that class.” then she gave an example, “If they are interested in working in a field, they can come and ask someone in that profession what they did in high school to better understand why they need to take the English, Math, and the Sciences; and it gives them a connection to their future careers. These kids start out thinking they know where their career path falls, and after they come here they know where it falls.”
The Week started out with a homecoming concert in the Red Barn on campus featuring Big Sean with CyHi da Prynce, other events during Homecoming Week included a fight song competition, the APSU Apollo Talent show, A step-off competition, a pep rally, and the NPHC Step show.
