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.”
