Tennessee State Representative - District 67Clarksville, TN – The Austin Peay State University (APSU) Military Student Center is collecting school supplies for military affiliated students attending the university. Your support is needed to help them attain their educational goals, since the majority of military affiliated students are non-traditional students who already have financial obligations outside of their education.

“It is often a financial sacrifice for our soldiers and their families to return to college,” said Tennessee State Representative Joe Pitts (D-Clarksville).

“And money for supplies can be in short supply.  We want to remove that concern and burden by making these items available at no cost to these students,” stated Pitts.

The school supplies drive will end on August 14th although items can still be donated up until classes begin on August 24th.

All items collected can be brought to the Military Student Center, Morgan University Center Room 120, on the Main Campus.

  • Office of Veterans Affairs, Ellington Building on Main Campus, Room 135
  • Office of Veterans Affairs, Army Education Center on Fort Campbell, Room 137
  • Vet Success on Campus, Ellington Building on Main Campus, Room 124

We are collecting and distributing the following items:

  • Binders (1 inch and 2 inch)
  • Highlighters (all colors)
  • Index Cards
  • Folders
  • File Dividers
  • Whiteout
  • Notebooks (wireless, spiral)
