APSU Hosts 2011-12 Youth Leadership Clarksville

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – A few days before the start of the 2011-12 school year, 30 high school students recently selected for the Youth Leadership Clarksville Class of 2012 spent the first part of their day getting to know each other – a crucial step before the afternoon’s activities.

One of the class members was tossed a ball. The student had to say his first name and toss the ball to someone else, who then had to repeat the previous names and add his at the end.

It’s a game designed to teach and build memory tools, said Dr. Robyn Hulsart, associate professor of professional studies at Austin Peay State University who led the exercise.

Austin Peay State University Lady GovsClarksville, TN – A year removed from the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament’s championship game, Austin Peay State University women’s soccer team has been picked third in the OVC’s preseason soccer poll, the league announced, Thursday.

“We’re happy about it, but at the same time, I don’t put much stock in preseason polls,” head coach Kelley Guth said. “It’s an indicator that our results, last year, earned us some respect within the conference and it’s well deserved.
