One of the most loyal friends of DO-IT died suddenly on June 24, 1999. Neil's career included positions at Boeing, Green River Community College, the Higher Education Coordinating Board, and the College of Engineering at the University of Washington. Although Neil officially retired from the College of Engineering in 1996, he continued to work as a volunteer on DO-IT efforts. He made effective use of his previous work experiences and contacts to help DO-IT secure ongoing state funding for its programs in Washington State. He served on our DO-IT Futures Advisory Board, helping us plan new initiatives. DO-IT and those of us who knew him personally have lost a good friend.
