WSU alumnus to speak on construction industry

Richard W. (Dick) Colf, executive vice president of Peter Kiewit Sons’ Inc., will make a presentation titled “Construction: The Coming Boom” at the 2005 Cheatham Lecture at 3 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20, in Carpenter 102. A reception will follow.

After graduating in 1966 from WSU with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering, Colf went to work for Peter Kiewit Son’s Inc., one of the largest construction companies in the U.S.

The Cheatham Engineering Management lecture series was established to honor the late Robert A. Cheatham, a devoted WSU alumnus and key player in establishment of the WSU Foundation. Cheatham was an engineer and corporate manager with the Bechtel Corporation. His heirs established the series.
