Retired Statesman reporter and columnist Tim Woodward and Micron executive Brent Keeth are being honored in Boise on Jan. 23 as outstanding University of Idaho alumni. Woodward is a 1971 graduate. Keeth got degrees in 1982 and 1996.
I join countless other Idahoans who looked forward to Woodwards next story because of his unique ability to bring to life so many aspects of our great state, Gov. Butch Otter said in a nomination.
Keeth, director of Microns Advanced Architecture Group, oversees development of high-performance computing and memory devices.
His work has made Micron the go-to design resource for innovative and groundbreaking solutions to the industrys toughest memory design problems contributing in large part to our companys successes, Micron CEO Mark Durcan wrote in nominating Keeth.
