Caterpillar Gives $100,000 to Construction Management Program


Caterpillar Inc. has made a $100,000 gift to benefit the Construction Management program at East Carolina University. The funds will be placed in an endowment that will help East Carolina expand an already successful program into a national leader to benefit the construction industry.


Scott Cooper, senior project engineer for Caterpillar Inc. and a 1990 graduate of East Carolina, made the check presentation at the ECU-Duke football game on September 3, 2005. Cooper said: “The ongoing partnership between Caterpillar and East Carolina, especially through an endowed fund, will add great value to the education of future construction professionals and help to positively transform the economy of our region.”


Caterpillar also has donated more than $250,000 worth of construction equipment to East Carolina for use in its classrooms.
