Former APSU Agriculture students honor Dr. Gaines Hunt with endowed scholarship

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Local farmers call him “Doc,” but don’t let the informal nickname fool you. Whenever they see Dr. Gaines Hunt, retired Austin Peay State University (APSU) professor of Agriculture, the word “Doc” sounds oddly formal.

“It’s a nickname, yes, but also a term of endearment and used with the highest level of admiration and respect,” Steve Settle, a Montgomery County farmer and former student of Hunt’s, said. “Each and every one of his students—myself included—will attest that we are better people, better leaders and better able to serve our chosen professions because of his influence in our lives.”
