CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Earlier this month, members of the Acuff Circle of Excellence Executive Board presented Austin Peay State University with a check for $25,000 to endow the new Acuff Circle of Excellence Arts Scholarship.

The mission of the Acuff Circle is to advance the role of arts and culture at APSU and in the Clarksville-Montgomery County community. The Acuff Circle of Excellence Arts Scholarship will be awarded annually to an Austin Peay student who is enrolled full-time with a 3.0 GPA and majoring in one of the primary areas of concentration (music, creative writing, visual arts, dance and theatre) within the College of Arts and Letters.

To donate to the Acuff Circle of Excellence Arts Scholarship fund, contact Susan Wilson, APSU director of Major Gifts, at 931-221-6357.
