Howard Connally grew up in Windom, Texas. He attended East Texas State University (now Texas A & M University at Commerce), where he earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees. After completing post graduate work at George Peabody College and the University of North Texas, he taught high school for nine years. He then returned to his alma mater in Commerce to teach for another eleven years before coming to Arlington.

Three years later he became an assistant to Wendell Nedderman, who was the dean of engineering. In 1965, he moved again, this time to the Office of Student Administration, where he worked until his retirement in 1978.
Since his retirement, Connally has served as vice president and president of the UTA Retiree’s Club.
