Clarksville, TN – On Thursday afternoon, members of Austin Peay State University’s Phi Alpha Theta (PAT) history honor society unveiled the third volume of its popular scholarly journal, Theta-Delta, during a ceremony in Harned Hall. The slim, red booklet might at first resemble the previous two editions of the journal, which features academic papers by APSU history students, but co-editor-in-chief Deanna Carter pointed to the masthead to show how this volume was different.
The names of several APSU history faculty members now serve on the journal’s editorial board. Dr. Jason Verber, assistant professor of history, also shared editor-in-chief duties with Carter.
On July 4th, the storms hit around 5:00pm and knocked out power to over 7,500 CDE Lightband customers on both sides of Memorial Drive, Richview Road, Indian Hills Drive, Craigmont Boulevard, Fairway Drive, and the Hilldale area. By the next morning CDE was reporting approximately 300 people were still without power. That was until a new line of storms rolled through around 4:00pm on July 5th knocking out electrical power to even more customers. As of the time of publication approximately 351 CDE Lightband customers are still without power.
Clarksville, TN – Dr. Daniel Shea, Austin Peay State University associate professor of languages and literature, leaned back in his chair and said, “We’ve got lots of programs for people who can spend considerable amounts of time abroad. If you want to study abroad for a year or a semester or a month, we’ve got you covered.”
Outside his office window in Harned Hall, dozens of nontraditional students walked across campus. They’re the type of students – parents, full-time employees and military veterans – who don’t necessarily have the time or money to spend weeks studying in a foreign country. «Read the rest of this article»

Clarksville, TN – William Edmondson, a humble stone carver and the son of slaves, died quietly after years of declining health. He was buried in an unmarked grave in Nashville.
It was an ironic fate, given that Edmondson spent years carving elaborate headstones for cemeteries around middle Tennessee. The eccentric artist believed that God commanded him to sculpt the shapes out of limestone, and after a few years, he began adding statues of biblical characters, people and animals to his body of work. His sculptures caught the eyes of several prominent art critics and in 1937, Edmondson became the first African-American artist to have a solo show of his work at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
Clarksville, TN – Twenty-five years ago, the legendary “King of Country Music” Roy Acuff endowed a Chair of Excellence at Austin Peay State University, allowing the Institution to bring world-renowned artistic talents to campus each year to work with students.
To commemorate that generous gift, the APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts is hosting a special exhibit, “Roy Acuff: Life and Legend” in the Mable Larson Gallery within the University’s Harned Hall. It will run from October 4th–October 29th, and is free and open to the public.
A new exhibition of Austin Peay State University student artwork is opening this month in the University’s newest gallery space.
The space officially opens at 3:30pm on September 8th, with a reception for the gallery’s first exhibit, “Abstract Painting: Student Work from the Topics in Studio Arts Course.” The show runs through September 30th, with paintings by students who took APSU assistant professor of art Warren Greene’s abstract painting class this summer.
On the third floor of Austin Peay State University’s Harned Hall, the words of the University’s fight song are now mounted on a wall.
“Smash! Bang! To victory/Go the Governors of Austin Peay.”
The song, along with several black-and-white photos of the campus, lends a nostalgic, collegiate atmosphere to the hallway, but it also helps tell the story of APSU. For the last semester, a group of students in a public history class have spent hours tracking down old photos and other bits of information to create a display depicting the history of APSU. «Read the rest of this article»

Through this project, PKP distributed more than 1,500 books to community children during last year’s G.H.O.S.T.

Currently, PKP has some books on hand for distribution during G.H.O.S.T., slated this year from 4-7 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 25 but needs many more. Since the inception of the Candy for the Mind project in 2003, hundreds of children who trick-or-treat at APSU have been thrilled to receive a book as a Halloween treat.
Dr. Linda Thompson, who started the program when she was president of PKP said, “Now that it’s become a tradition, the children come back to us, year after year, eagerly looking for a book from the ‘book people.’” «Read the rest of this article»
