Randy Reneau (BA Geology, 1973)

Petroleum Geologist in Texas and Louisiana

Okay, I graduated in '73 (BA Geol.) and worked ~35 years as an exploration geologist (uranium, gold, copper, diamonds, and silver). Worked in Mexico (Ag) and Africa (diamonds and gold) and in most of W. USA. Retired in 2010 and wrote 7 novels, most with geologist protagonist. Was fortunate to win a number of awards and retired again to be around my 9 grandkids (it's something in the water down here???).

Over the years, I've supported the CWU geology dept. including the Bentley Scholarship. My time at Central (even though interrupted by 14 mos. In the RVN) was one of the best parts of my life . . .

All the best and hope to meet up one day!
