Carroll Financial Trading Center
College of Business officially opens Larry W. Carroll Financial Trading Center at ribbon cutting ceremony

This center allows Austin Peay business students to mimic the work of Wall Street’s top traders by giving them access to the same tools used by financial professionals around the world. In 2015, North Carolina businessman and Austin Peay alumnus Larry Carroll contributed a lead gift to help finance the project.

College of Business officially opens Larry W. Carroll Financial Trading Center at ribbon cutting ceremony. A few months after Carroll made his contribution, Dr. Mark Green, Tennessee state senator and founder of the healthcare company AlignMD, along with his wife, Camilla Green, presented Austin Peay President Alisa White with a major donation for the project. That gift was used to install the Dr. Mark and Camilla Green Stock Exchange Ticker Display within the trading center.

Family and friends of the late John K. Hopson, a longtime Montgomery County Farm Bureau agent, also supported the new trading center, allowing the Austin Peay College of Business to create the John K. Hopson Innovation Rooms. These rooms will provide a place for business students to analyze data and participate in real-world business simulations.
