A graduate of Pennsylvania State University and resident of San Antonio, Texas, Reid Hackney led a successful career as an executive for retail companies such as A’GACI. Now retired, Reid Hackney pursues a diverse range of outdoor hobbies, including hiking and exploring urban parks. An avid bicyclist, he enjoys biking in and around San Antonio.

As part of the city’s commitment to providing low-cost, environmentally friendly transportation options, San Antonio city leaders recently announced a new joint initiative with San Antonio Bike Share, a nonprofit organization devoted to bringing bike-sharing options to San Antonio. Currently, San Antonio Bike Share operates B-Cycle, a bike-sharing program that allows users to rent bikes from established stations around the city for short trips.

The new initiative would enhance this program by adding dockless bicycles to B-Cycle’s fleet. Dockless bikes already are used in several other cities around the country and provide the convenience of not needing a special station to secure the bicycles. Instead, program participants simply “check out” and “check in” their bikes, using a mobile app, anywhere that is most convenient for them. The city and B-Cycle hope to offer a formal program proposal in the spring of 2018.

Reid Hackney is a retired financial executive who most recently served as vice president and chief financial officer of San Antonio, Texas’ AGACI. An accounting alumnus of Penn State University, Reid Hackney remains a passionate fan of the school’s football team.

The 2018 National Football League (NFL) Draft takes place from April 26 to April 28 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and as many as eight former Nittany Lions are hoping to be selected in the seven-round draft. Running back Saquon Barkley headlines a class of eight Penn State players who were invited to the NFL Combine. The others are tight end Mike Gesicki, wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton, linebacker Jason Cabinda, cornerbacks Christian Cambell and Grant Haley, and safeties Troy Apke and Marcus Allen.

Through three seasons with Penn State, Barkley compiled 3,843 rushing yards as well as 1,195 receiving yards. He also had a combined 51 touchdowns. Barkley is expected to be taken early in the draft, but others, including Campbell and Apke, need a strong showing at the combine to solidify their chances of being drafted. Only one Penn State alumnus was selected in the 2017 NFL Draft, while four others signed as undrafted free agents.
