Area media take close look at APSU tornado recovery efforts
January 29, 2001
“The Leaf Chronicle” and WSMV-Channel 4 took a look at post-tornado rebuilding efforts in Clarksville and on the Austin Peay campus this week, while Channel 43, Hopkinsville, and Channel 17, Nashville, interviewed Dr. Wayne Chester, professor of biology.
Chester chaired the on-campus effort, called Operation Green, to bring the campus landscape back.
Lauded projects included the renovation of Archwood, the complete interior redesign of Clement Hall, repairs to Harvill and Harned halls and the new cupola on the Browning Building.
Repairs of tornado-induced damage to the Marks, music-mass communication, McCord, Claxton, Sexton, Trahern and McReynolds buildings also was noted in an article in the “Leaf Chronicle.”
