After graduation, Scotty McClary started a career in digital communications that took him from Tucson, Ariz., to Washington, D.C., to Florida, where he now lives, semi-retired, in Delray Beach with his wife, Lynn.
McClary started out as a communications engineer for Bell Aerosystems in Tucson, and then URS, which transferred him to Falls Church, Va., where he was lead engineer and project manager for the Department of the Army Inventory Control System.
In 1973 he went to work for Computer Sciences Corporation in Falls Church, where he was lead engineer and project manager for communications systems for several government departments and agencies.
He transferred to Miami in 1984 to oversee development of an automated air and sea cargo clearance system for Miami International Airport and the Port of Miami. "Living in South Florida put sand in our shoes," McClary said. He became a certified Scuba diver and instructor, and owned his own dive business.
"In my spare time, I am an avid reader and enjoy spending time with my son and daughter," McClary said. "I am very proud that my two granddaughters, Kaycee and Jessica, are following the tradition by becoming UA graduates." Kaycee graduated from UA in December 2011 with a major in creative writing and a minor in pre-law thematic. Jessica will graduate in December 2013, majoring in psychology with a minor in French.
