McGee returns to LCU as development, alumni director

Louisiana Christian University welcomes back Byron McGee as director of development and alumni.

McGee retired at the end of 2018 after a 35-year career at the university, having worked in the admissions office and alumni relations, and concluding his tenure as vice president for Institutional Advancement.

McGee is also a 1979 graduate of the college.

“I love the college,” McGee said. “I always have. The school took me, a country boy from Oakdale, and helped me understand higher education. The progression of what the school did for me and has done for so many others, it can do for so many others.”

McGee said he feels honored and humbled by the university for reaching out to him to assist during this time of transition.

“My hope is that I can help facilitate things during this period and help the new administration get off to a good start,” he said.

Dr. Rick Brewer, who served as the university’s 9th president since February 2015, retired earlier this month. Executive Vice President Dr. David Jeffreys is currently serving as acting president.

“We are excited to have Byron working at LCU again,” Jeffreys said. “I have known Byron for many years and have known him to be a godly man with a servant’s heart. I am excited to serve alongside him as a friend and a Wildcat!”

McGee said his first order of business will be to reconnect with the community and alumni.
