Tennessee Representative Joe Pitts talks about President Tim Hall Leaving Austin Peay State University

 

“…they are leaving our university a much stronger institution because of their commitment to servant leadership.”

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 is difficult if not impossible to measure the positive impact on our university by Tim and the APSU First Lady Lee Hall.

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.

Clarksville Mother Celebrates Son’s First Birthday by Helping Preemies in Need

 

Miller-Motte Technical CollegeClarksville, TN – Stacy Robers is the mother of two young sons. She also has her RN and works in the health field at Miller-Motte Technical College instructing the CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) students. For those who know Robers, it is not a surprise that she would rather donate the money, that she would spend on her son Ethan’s first birthday for gifts, to the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and use it to bless others.

The reason Robers is donating that money is because she knows first-hand how hard it is to have a preemie. Robers explains how helping others who have preemies can make such a big difference after their birth and during the time needed for their babies to grow. This is the message that Robers posted on her Facebook page.
