Story by Charles Booth, APSU
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – On Nov. 18, Austin Peay State University will honor several generous individuals when it opens its new Maynard Mathematics and Computer Science Building.
The ceremony will begin at 3:30 p.m. with a ribbon cutting by APSU alumnus and local businessman James Maynard. The two-story facility, which will provide much needed classroom and office space to the growing campus, was named for Maynard because of his unwavering support of APSU over the years. Recently, he created an endowed scholarship that is awarded annually to a student pursuing a degree in business at the University.
After the ribbon cutting, visitors will be directed to the elaborate courtyard in front of the building. This unique space is being named in honor of Ken and Amy Landrum, who both graduated from APSU in 1964. Earlier this year, the Landrums received the Tennessee Board of Regents 2013 Regents Award for Excellence in Philanthropy because of their extraordinary generosity to their alma mater over the years.
The ceremony then will move indoors to dedicate the building’s atrium in honor of Barry and Maggie Kulback. The couple has provided tremendous financial support and leadership to APSU over the years, helping transform the University into a nationally recognized institution of higher learning.
Visitors will move from the atrium to the hallway, to get a look at the classrooms and a conference room named in honor of several individuals. The University named the rooms for these individuals because of the tremendous support they have shown APSU recently.
Following the ceremony, visitors are invited to stay and tour the new Maynard Mathematics and Computer Science Building.
