Clarksville City Council - Ward 10Clarksville, TN – The Charter Committee met Monday afternoon to continue efforts to update the city charter. A number of discussions were held, but no decisions reached. The mayor continued to press that we need to finish and that some things could be worked at later in the year.

Austin Peay State University’s Dr. Linda Sitton retires after 14 years of leading Tennessee Early Childhood Training Alliance

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – On a rainy Friday afternoon last week, a steady collection of umbrellas appeared outside one of the ballrooms of the Austin Peay State University Morgan University Center. Inside, a few soaking wet individuals gathered around tables of food, and one woman entered the room to announce that small, penny-sized pieces of hail were at that moment pelting the sidewalks.

The bad weather, however, didn’t stop the friends and colleagues of Dr. Linda Sitton from trekking across campus to attend a reception commemorating her retirement from APSU after 14 years as director of the school’s Tennessee Early Childhood Training Alliance.
