Austin Peay State University Fieldhouse gets transformative gift from Jenkins Family

 

Austin Peay State University Sports - APSU - Governors - Lady GovsClarksville, 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.
