Dr. Fred Bryant

A true product of Northside, Dr. Fred Bryant recently attended the 42nd reunion of the first-ever state championship team (basketball) from Northside ISD. Prior to attending Marshall High School, he attended Leon Valley Elementary, and Ross and Neff middle schools. Following graduation, he earned degrees from Texas Tech, Utah State, and Texas A&M. To become an expert on wildlife research, endangered species, range management, and environmental issues, Dr. Bryant worked all over the world - from Peru and Bolivia to Morocco and Australia. However, since becoming Director of the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute at Texas A&M-Kingsville in 1996, he says, "We can be world class without doing research all over the world." Calling South Texas "the last great habitat," Dr. Bryant supervises biological research with respect for the environment: the people, animals, and plants in it.
