Honk if you love Austin Peay!

August 26, 2003

With horns blaring and riders waving, a convoy of red vehicles wound its way across the Austin Peay campus Wednesday.

Fraternities, sororities, cheerleaders and athletes waved and threw treats to faculty, staff, administrators and students lining campus roads. Clarksville Mayor Don Trotter and alumni representatives also came along for the ride.

With horns blaring and riders waving, a convoy of red vehicles wound its way across the Austin Peay campus Wednesday.

Fraternities, sororities, cheerleaders and athletes waved and threw treats to faculty, staff, administrators and students lining campus roads. Clarksville Mayor Don Trotter and alumni representatives also came along for the ride.

Members of the football team threw red Frisbees, while basketball players tossed Tootsie Rolls. Basketball coach Dave Loos tossed treats from his seat inside a Clarksville Fire Department truck. Dr. Sherry Hoppe, watching the parade from the rear of Browning, seemed to be a favorite target for the riders and ended up with both hands overflowing with Jolly Ranchers and other candies.

All the participating vehicles ended up at the UC plaza, where a pizza challenge was underway.

The event was organized by Lynne Yarbrough of Student Life and Leadership.
