 all securities regulatory matters and corporate governance.  Hite previously
 was assistant corporate secretary.
     "Perri brings to her new position solid experience in corporate securities
 matters, mergers and acquisitions, real estate, and technology licensing,"

 activities related to mergers and acquisitions, procurement, and real estate.
     After receiving her Juris Doctor degree in 1996, Hite became the principal
 attorney supporting ATK's Global Environmental Solutions subsidiary.  She
 later returned to mergers and acquisitions, licensing, insurance, and real
 estate activities.  She was named assistant corporate secretary in October
 1999.

 Concordia College in St. Paul and a Juris Doctor degree from the William
 Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul.
