Blick family honors son’s legacy with the Brock Blick Animal Science Facility at APSU Farm

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, 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.”

Austin Peay State University Farm and Environmental Education Center renamed to the Brock Blick Animal Science Facility.

Blick family honors son’s legacy with new Austin Peay State University agriculture scholarship

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, 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.”
