PASADENA, Texas - Texas Chiropractic College (TCC) announced Dr. Brad McKechnie, D.C., DACAN as the College’s Interim President effective Monday, April 14, 2014.

Dr. McKechnie’s appointment comes on the heels of an announcement by Dr. R. Fred Zuker, Ph.D. that he would step down as the College’s interim president for health reasons, a position he held for seven months.

As Interim President, Dr. McKechnie will oversee the day-to-day operations of the College. After graduating from TCC in 1985, he served as a faculty member from 1986 to 1996 including various administrative roles as the Dean of Postgraduate Studies and Dean of External Affairs.
