John and Leslie McKee are honored to serve as Co-chairmen of the Seaver Parent Council for the 2017-18 academic year. They have two children, one of whom is a "Wave". Their son, John Colby,  graduated in 2011 with a major in business from Loyola Marymount University . Their daughter, Christine, is a senior at Pepperdine, majoring in Sports Administration and a minor in Nonprofit Management. She is a member of a sorority and studied abroad in Shanghai.

John and Leslie are Board member of the Pepperdine Boone Center for the Family. They are originally from Kansas but have called California their home for many years, and their close proximity to campus allows them to be involved in the Wave community. They look forward to meeting you at New Student Orientation and Waves Weekend and sharing with you their enthusiasm for Pepperdine .
