“I’m honored to be recognized by the Technology Association of Oregon and proud of what our team at nLIGHT has achieved over the past two decades,” said Keeney. “I remember Sam for his commitment to both the technology sector and the community.  His work remains an enduring example that should continue to inspire all of us.”
