Sawtooth has hired Eddie Fitzgerald as Program Coordinator for our school’s wood department. In this newly created position, Fitzgerald will be responsible for developing the quarterly curriculum for the wood program as well as teaching and managing that department’s adjunct faculty. He has been actively engaged with Sawtooth in the past as an instructor and as an exhibiting artist. Fitzgerald has been a carpenter for over 30 years and has spent the last 11 years designing and producing furniture. He has a BA in Philosophy and is working on his Masters in Liberal Studies from UNCG.
“Eddie is the perfect person to grow our wood program. He brings years of experience in the field and a deep passion for Sawtooth,” said Sawtooth Executive Director JoAnne Vernon. “Sara Sloan Stine has done a truly admirable job of managing the wood program over the last several years in addition to the metals and glass programs. As we move forward with our plans to expand the wood department, however, we needed to dedicate a staff position exclusively to this department to help it reach its full potential.”
