Before beginning a career as a financial executive, Reid Hackney attended Penn State University in State College, Pennsylvania, where he earned a bachelor of science degree in accounting. As a PSU alumnus, Reid Hackney is a fan of the Nittany Lions college football team.
A member of the NCAA’s Big Ten Football Conference, the Nittany Lions of Penn State have developed a loyal following and reward their fans with exciting and often successful games. Their home field is Beaver Stadium, which seats more than 106,000 people and was renovated in 2001 to provide better facilities and add 60 enclosed skyboxes.
The Nittany Lions have created several opportunities for fans to get to know the team, including the Cub Club. The Penn State Cub Club gives kids up to the eighth grade the chance to experience Nittany Lion tradition, not just with the football team, but with PSU’s basketball, baseball, and ice hockey teams, among others. Membership benefits in the club include free admission to some sporting events, invitations to special events and a monthly athletics newsletter to keep up-to-date with Nittany Lion sports happenings.
San Antonio’s Mission Trail
A retired retail executive, Reid Hackney most recently served as vice president and chief financial officer at A’GACI in San Antonio. In retirement, Reid Hackney enjoys pursuing a diverse range of hobbies that includes hiking and cycling in the parks and recreation areas around San Antonio.
Home to a number of walking paths and biking trails, San Antonio and the surrounding area offers many opportunities for those who enjoy spending time in the outdoors. One of the city’s most popular hiking and biking routes is the Mission Trail, which takes riders along the San Antonio River and through the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park.
A relatively easy ride, the Mission Trail features mostly flat terrain along its entire length of approximately 20 miles. In addition to winding through scenic open countryside, the loop connects the popular tourist attraction The Alamo with four other Spanish Colonial missions: Mission Concepción, Mission San José, Mission San Juan Capistrano, and Mission Espada.
Walkers and bikers can make a full round-trip or start at any of the missions and make their way to the next one along the path. At each mission, visitors will find water and a cool place to take a breather as they explore some of San Antonio’s most important historical sites.
