He has acted as Director of Admissions at St. John’s College in Santa Fe, New Mexico for twenty-five years. In that time, Mr. Clendenin served as president of RMACAC from 1990 to 1991 and as a Delegate to NACAC from 1992 to 1995. In his career, Larry Clendenin has also been on the Credentials Committee of NEACAC, and has maintained an active membership in NACAC since 1981.
