Clarksville, TN – When the opportunity to give Austin Peay State University (APSU) athletes an indoor facility which stands alone among Ohio Valley Conference brethren, there was no way Austin Peay State University Director of Athletics Gerald Harrison could allow the chance to go by.
But an undertaking of this kind requires trusted partners, the sort who believe in the vision being laid down by those in charge. And that’s where the Jenkins family comes into the picture.
Don and Sandy Jenkins have been a supportive part of the Austin Peay State University community for years, donating their time and monetary support for a variety of endeavors academically and athletically.

Austin Peay State University (APSU)
Clarksville, TN – The name “Jane Doe” sounds a bit impersonal, so for years, one of the Austin Peay State University (APSU) anonymous donors was known simply as “Ms. Jane.”
This alias was often whispered in the Austin Peay State University Advancement Office, as if the staff worried they were revealing too much of her identity, and it wasn’t unusual for students to cry when mentioning her name.

Clarksville, TN – One of Brock Blick’s first words—shortly after he learned to say “mom” and “dad”—was the word “cow.” As a baby, strapped in his car seat, he’d often shout the word whenever his father, Mark Blick, drove past a farm.
“It’d scare you to death,” Mark said recently. “It was a wonder we didn’t have wrecks, he yelled it so loud. But he loved animals.”
Clarksville, TN – In 2014, Austin Peay State University established the John W. Moseley Media Room in the Dunn Center, but nearly three years later, a related scholarship honoring the late professor had not been endowed.
“I found out we were short about $500.00,” Dr. Mike Gotcher, former chair of the Austin Peay State University Department of Communication, said. “I made a donation, and I contacted Bikers Who Care, who also helped out, and we got it endowed.”
Clarksville, TN – In late July 2017, Mark and Jeri Blick visited the Austin Peay State University farm to officially establish the Brock Blick Endowed Scholarship in Agriculture, in honor of their late son, Brock. But their generous gift to the University that afternoon represented only the first phase of a larger plan to honor Brock’s legacy.
Clarksville, TN – Brock Blick wanted some cows. That’s all the 11-year-old talked about (along with hunting and fishing and golf and baseball), especially after spending the day on his grandfather’s farm. Brock would come home at night and inform his father they needed more land to hold all his cows—he wanted 15.
“I said, ‘Ok, we’ll do that,’” Mark Blick, Brock’s father, said. “‘When you turn 15, we’ll buy some land, and we’ll get you some cows.’ He absolutely loved cows.”
