Our Namesake

Expanded in 2010, thanks to a generous donation from CH2M HILL, the Ralph R. Peterson Resource Library is named after the former CEO of CH2M HILL who lost his battle with Cancer in 2009. We wish to extend our sincere appreciation to the CH2M HILL organization for their generous contribution and support.
