2014 Outstanding Former Student

With a 52-year career in education, 50 of which were spent working in the community college sector, Dr. Bryon McClenney has become one of our country’s foremost leaders in student success. He has worked for many colleges across the nation from New York City to Denver, Colorado; and, for the past 10 years, has worked at his alma mater, the University of Texas at Austin. With many awards and accomplishments, it surprises some to learn that he got his start as a Ranger, right here at San Antonio College.  

Dr. McClenney, a San Antonio native, grew up very poor. While in high school, he was President of the National Honor Society, but he says that no one ever really talked to him about going to college. Upon graduating from Brackenridge High School in 1957, he was recruited to play basketball for SAC and thus became the first person in his family to attend college.  

Throughout the years, Dr. McClenney has shared a long relationship with San Antonio College. Initially, he was a student and All-Conference basketball star; then he returned as a faculty member and administrator; and ultimately he served as Chancellor of the San Antonio Community College District.  

As a college administrator and leader within the higher education industry for many years, Dr. McClenney has worked on various projects that have helped countless students. Following almost 33 years as a CEO, Dr. McClenney has spent a decade as National Director of Leadership Coaching for Achieving the Dream while running several national student success initiatives at UT-Austin. He has made teaching, learning and education a priority in his career, and along the way has inspired many others to do the same.   

Dr. McClenney has received numerous awards throughout the years. Perhaps the most notable have been: University of Texas Distinguished Graduate (1983), One of the 100 Most Effective Chief Executives in Higher Education (1986), One of the 50 Most Effective Community College Leaders (1988), Thomas J. Peters National Leadership Award from the League for Innovation and the University of Texas (1989), National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development International Leadership Award (1996), PTK Shirley B. Gordon Award of Distinction (1998), PBS O’Banion Prize at the League for Innovation (2002), and the American Association of Community Colleges Leadership Award (2011).    

In addition, Dr. McClenney has published innumerable papers, and he frequently speaks at various engagements. An avid traveler, he and his wife Dr. Kay McClenney, have travelled extensively around the world, most recently visiting Italy. Professionally, he has served as a management consultant, teleconference presenter, speaker, and accrediting association evaluator in 47 states, three Canadian provinces, the UK and the West Indies. 

Dr. McClenney received all of his degrees (a bachelors, masters and doctorate) from the University of Texas at Austin. So, you could say he is a Longhorn at heart. But before that, he was a Ranger. And, once a Ranger… always a Ranger.
