After his retirement from the College in 2014, McKeon served for three years as the Founding Executive Director of City Year Tulsa, a national AmeriCorps affiliated program aimed at keeping students in high need schools on-track to graduate from high school.

In addition, McKeon was a founding member of the Oklahoma State Regents steering committee for Complete College America and continues to consult with State Regents staff on college completion initiatives in Oklahoma.

In 2007, McKeon was named Tulsan of the Year by Tulsa People Magazine and was also inducted that year into the Oklahoma State University's College of Education Hall of Fame. He is a recipient of the Paragon Award from Leadership Tulsa and in 2012 was named as one of five Oklahoman’s of the Year by Oklahoma Magazine. In 2015, McKeon was inducted into the Oklahoma Higher Education Hall of Fame.

McKeon earned a Bachelor of Science degree from California Polytechnic State University, a Master of Science in 1983 and a Doctorate in 1989, both from Oklahoma State University.
