Austin Peay State University cancels this weekend’s 36th Annual Candlelight Ball
(Posted March 12, 2020)
Earlier today, Austin Peay State University canceled its 36th Annual Candlelight Ball, scheduled for March 14 in Nashville, due to concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Although we had planned extra precaution for the safety of our guests, hosting the event is not prudent at this time,” APSU President Alisa White said. “We are proud of those we planned to honor at the Ball and will ask our honorees to allow us to honor them next year.”
Details for refunds will be communicated on the Candlelight Ball website at www.alumni.apsu.edu/candlelightball, social media and email.
Also today, University officials suspended classes until March 23, when instruction will be moved online. Read White's announcement here.
