Austin Peay AD Ryan Ivey to Speak at Luncheon

The Martin Methodist College Athletic Department will continue its monthly RedHawk Athletic Luncheon series next Wednesday, August 2, at the Hickory House restaurant in Pulaski.


The monthly event is held the first Wednesday of every month at Noon. The cost of the buffet will be $5 (excluding drink) and the RedHawks will pick up the balance of your buffet tab.


August’s speaker will be Mr. Ryan Ivey, Athletic Director at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tennessee.


Ivey will speak to the RedHawks and attendees on the value of “building a culture and brand for success.” Ivey recently concluded his second year at Austin Peay after an impressive two-year stint in the same position at Texas A&M-Commerce, where he elevated a lower-level Division II program into a Lone Star Conference powerhouse.


In addition to the special guest each month, Wednesday’s meeting will also feature a brief recap and preview of RedHawk Athletic and Martin Methodist College events. A prize giveaway will also be conducted near the end of each meeting.


Previous speakers at the RedHawk luncheon have included: Tennessee Titans Director of Broadcasting Mike Keith, former University of Tennessee Athletic Director Mike Hamilton and ex-MLB pitcher David Weathers.


Come join the RedHawks in the RedHawk Room at the Hickory House Restaurant for a social, fast-paced “power luncheon” with limited seating. The luncheon will conclude by 12:50 p.m.
