Golf CEO links tech to success

Solheim, a former LeTourneau University student and board trustee whom the school’s basketball arena is named after, delivered the keynote address at a banquet Tuesday night as part of “E-Week” — LeTourneau’s way of celebrating National Engineers Week, which started Sunday and ends Saturday.
