    Kitchell, one of the state’s leading construction-industry firms, has long been an ally of Northern Arizona University and its Native American students – and now the company is looking to build on the successful partnership.

    During a December 10 ceremony at NAU’s Blome Building, Mark Pendleton, president of Kitchell Contractors, along with Dr. Barry L. Lutz, interim dean of Northern Arizona University’s College of Engineering, Forestry and Natural Sciences and Tom Rogers, chairman of NAU’s Department of Construction Management, signed an agreement for the company to provide a scholarship fund for Native American students studying construction management.
