            For me Austin Peay was more than a school, it was a heritage and a family legacy. I was the 4th generation to attend and receive my degree. My education extended far beyond what I learned in the classrooms. My friendships, relationships and experiences all served to prepare me for my career and life after college. I am proud to be a Governor and never miss an opportunity to brag on The Play and I am proud to see my family legacy continue with my son and the 5th generation Ballard attending in the fall! Let's Go Peay!
